Most likely you need the $40 remove/install tool from NAPA. Last time I did a clutch I just broke down and bought one.

Yes it is prssed on and yes there is a nut (at least on the Fiero compressor). Have several normal pullers, this is different (why I bought the tool), the puller screws inside the pulley.
