Direct drive or pulley?
one way to get the nut off is to use a drill, a flex shaft adapter, a 3/8 socket drives and a socket that fits the nut. The the drill torsion to back the nut off the shaft. Then, clean up the threads on the shaft.

If you can remove the motor, carefully drill a hole in the end of the shaft (either end), tap the hole and install a bolt (head diameter less than the shaft diameter, a jam nut at the end of the bolt may be required to give enough surface so you’re not just rounding off a small bolt head) epoxy in place. Use the head of the nut to brace the shaft to remove/replace the arbor nut.
