no it is not threaded on. make sure the 2 pinch bolts are loose. Apply localized heat to the hub itself (hair dryer or heat gun work great). Wear a glove or hot pad when the hub is hot and pull and or twist it off.
Somtimes the get stuck on there prety good. Especially if too much loktite was used and it seeped down the shaft to the hub.

It's not threaded. Remove the nut on the engine crankshaft and loosen the two lower screws that clamp the fan to the crankshaft. If it's still stuck, try a little heat.

yes, I'm sure the top part is threaded. loosen the two grip screws then unscrew the hub and fan. I keep the fan fitted to the hub and wrap a tea towel over the fan to get a good grip on it when unscrewing. I remove the carb and put a piece of hard wood in the hole where the carb fits to stop the engine rotating.

Hope this helps

What's a "tea towel"?
