Worst I had was a WD2 Wolserley that had been the base of a rockery for 30 years, that span off eventually.

Bit of an update, had a wander over to Tasman Industries (thanks for the lead Martin) and bought a new key for 9, not sure if that's a good price as I've not bought one before.

Turned the engine with the flywheel to clean the shaft and it started to spin so it looks like it's going to come off fairly easily

Cleaned the shaft up and the flywheel slid off easily
