Lower fan belt pulley

Can anyone tell me if the lower fan belt pulley is just pressed on? I can't see that the drive shaft is threaded for a retainer bolt and I find it hard to believe that it is held on by friction. The manual doesn't explain it very well. Help would be appreciated.

If I remember correctly I think the keyway was tapered. On james car we pulled it off with a wheel puller. we put back by aligning keyway and tapped it on with a rubber mallet. The thing is I don't remember if it was a moon key or semi tapered?

It is a standard half moon key and the pulley is a straight tight fit into position.

It is a half moon key. I guess that the tension of the belt would also prevent it from coming off. I will tap it back on and replace the belt. I hope to start it up this week for the first time in 46 yrs. I have followed the manual for timing, new plugs, wires, points, coil, etc. and excited to see if it will run. Thanks for the input. Will post as to how it goes.
