Torching hell out of it will help a bit. Have you tried that yet?

I wouldn't recommend torching it. Its way to close to the steering box, lots of stuff in there that shouldn't be heated up.

Definatley would not heat it!! you can get pickle forks fairly cheap. Had to use on mine. downfall is you have to hit the pickle fork with a hammer (manual tools) Huge pain but it usually will do the trick

I tried 2 or 3 pullers we had around the shop that were supposed to work,,,found 1 at Harbor Freight for something like 18 bucks that fits/works great.

You can rent pullers from the auto part stores for free. Don't heat because you will probably ruin an seal and a leaking shaft sucks.
