Just thought of another solution to the problem. Wouldn't have to remove the head or the cylinder or apply the screwdriver treatment to the wrist pin. Just get out your portable drill, apply a half-inch drill bit to a high-sided (above the belt) area of the pulley, get both halves in the bite ... and voila, local leverage hole.
 
I imagine this pulley is probably pressed steel but it wouldn't be hardened. Be careful to choose a leverage (ok, don't put away that screwdriver yet) point behind the works though. White metal or any mischhmash of aluminum and alloy is notoriously soft, and flanges, even screw holes of 1/8" thickness, are easy to break ... off.
