I have a Big Ten and am having trouble removing the pulley on the end of the crankshaft. Can anyone give me some tips or suggestions? Thank you

First thing is first.  Have you removed the set screw on the keyway?  Second thing second.  Verify there is not a second set screw on the keyway under the first.  Then, is the pulley a cast iron pulley or stamped?  If cast iron, then you can use a gear puller in conjunction with your favorite flavor of penetrating lubricant & some heat.  Be careful as not to break the pulley with the puller.  If the pulley is stamped, others have made supports to place on the back side of the pulley to use a gear puller as not to bent the crap out of if when removing.

The title of this post mentions "blower housing removal." Are we talking about removing the starter/generator belt pulley on the flywheel side which is the same side as the blower housing?

That's a really good question.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
