I have a Kenmore series 80 dryer model number 110.64842400.I purchase part number 3394341 (motor pulley). How do I remove the motor pulley? I tried to remove it but should I remove motor to do so or can I leave it attached? I don't want to strip anything.

I'm not sure why you want to remove the drive pulley on your dryer. The factory installed pulley is made of metal and it shouldn't need to be replaced unless it damaged or has burrs in the grooves of the pulley. You do not have to remove the motor in order to remove the pulley.

To remove pulley:

There is flat spot on the motor shaft about 1 inch behind the pulley.

Use a crescent wrench on the flat spot to prevent the motor shaft from turning.

Use another crescent wrench to turn the motor pulley counterclockwise (CCW) while holding the motor shaft from turning.
