Problems with SET MPW5 generator

BW was plugged into the mains for 18 months so the generator didn't get started. Came to start it and it was locked solid. I've had the head off, after quite a struggle, and the piston is solid. I thought I'd split the generator from the engine, undid the 4 nuts and it would not split, there is a large pulley on the outside that has no visible means of removal, so stops the generator coming off the engine.
Anyone worked on these generators that can give me a few pointers.
No smart Alec comments please, I've been working on this all day and am really pissed off!!
