Is it a left hand thread?
I would apply a propane torch to the nut to warm it up to about 250 degrees to soften the thread retaining compount that Delta must have used on this nut.
I have to say this is the first Delta arbor of this configurtion I have ever seen. I would also get the entire casting off the saw and clamp the pulley in the jaws of a vice, using wood protectors of course. this would allow you o use mor force if needed to remove the nut. I assume it still comes out by driving out a pin? Don’t lose the wavy washer that goes in the pivot joint.
