If you go to autozone there should be a wrench called a chain wrench that will help ALOT keeping that pulley stiff so it won't move when you go to unbolt the pulley just put that over the pulley and in the middle should be a bolt use the right size bolt and a breaker bar (long metal pole over the back of your ratchet) and right tighty lefty Lucy hope I came to some kind of help! :)
