OK, the Crankshaft, Camshaft, and the Power Steering pulleys are all secured with bolts and once the bolts are removed, the pulleys can be pulled off by either using a puller, or by gently tapping on each side to loosen them & they should slide straight off. They can't be pulled by prying on one side or the other you could bend & damage them, straight forward is the key. Spraying a little penetrating oil into the space between the crank or cam after the bolt is removed should help to remove some of the varnish that has built up & that will make them stick. The most difficult part is to prevent the engine from turning while removing those bolts. Generally you can put a breaker bar on the crank to stabilize it & successfully remove the other bolts, but removing the crank bolt itself wll require that you either get the tool designed for keeping the engine from turning ( a dealer item), or maybe with the help of an assistant, remove the starter & use a pry bar to prevent the flywheel from turning, or, if you have an inspection plate on the bellhousing that is easy to remove you can use a pry bar or block of wood against the flexplate or flywheel there. A block of hardwood (you have to fabricate this) that can be wedged against the flywheel/flexplate will prevent damage to the teeth and provide you with a means of stopping engine movement. You don't want to turn the engine backwards. good luck.
