That clutch is on the tapered trans main shaft and may have split at the taper. You can try the snowmobile clutch pull method but you need to be careful. Use a brass hammer or drift and hit the end of the mainshaft. Put the nut on to keep the mainshaft from mushrooming over. Hitting the end of the mainshaft should dislodge the clutch hub from the taper. Try light hits at first, it may not take much.

Screw the nut halfway on,put an extension on the socket you used for the nut. Now hit it sharply. Hub should become free. Old school,cave man method.

Did it shear the key and spin on the taper?

A quick rap on the head of the puller screw with a ball peen hammer usually works , sometimes the studs pull , but if it's spun , , , !

Pull the basket and rollers , put the keyway at 12:00. Put the puller on and snug up on it good , then hit the hub at 12:00 with an O/A torch for no more than 10sec or ya risk softening the input shaft. Should expand the hub enough to 'let go' of the shaft.
