Lawn tractor engine replacement

I am replacing a 14.5 HP Briggs & Stratton engine with a 17 HP on a Snapper Z- Rider Yard Cruiser. I cannot get the pulley from the main shaft which is all that remains to remove the engine. I have tried using a 3 point wheel puller only to damage the pulley. even after bracing the pull points I got the same results. What am I doing wrong?

My Snapper 48" zero turn is running batteries dead. I just replaced the battery cut my yard once and the battery is dead. What are some possibilities?


The charging circuit is faulty and is not charging the battery when the engine is running. Best case is a bad connection or frayed cable, worst case is a faulty alternator.
