Atco A10 12in pulley removal

I am dismantling a 1962 Atco A10 but I am having great difficulty in removing the pulley attached to the rear cylinder. A previous owner also appears to have tried without success. The bolt holding the pulley appears to be threaded but I am uncertain as to which hand the thread turns and what is the best way of getting the bolt off.

A bit of guess work but as it appears to be driving the cutting cylinder - left hand thread. Try warming it up before attempting to undo.

Wristpin, Thanks for reply, I will heat it up. The mower is upside down in the photo. The drive is to the rear roller.
