Use a pair of dykes, or cutting pliers, grip the key on its sides and push down on the dykes to pop the key out.

vice grips... then use an emory cloth or sand paper to smooth it out after you screwed it up trying to get it out.

When you put the pulley back on don't do what I did and displace the woodruff key with the pulley thus forcing the key into the crankshaft oil seal. THe key then chews up the oil seal when you start the engine making a right mess and losing all the oil!

Why are cutting pliers called dykes? Never heard them called that...
