    Use a ring spanner over the end of the puller army to give bit more leverage an it should pop

    well it have been soaking in wd40 for 5 days now... more to think its about the aluminium on iron problem .. im not going to use a hacksaw (dont have one).. hammer... ive tried to tap it gentle.. but dont want to break anything... the bolt is on, so i dont ruin the thread.. but just dont come of.. well give it abit more wd40 and leave it til Next weekend.
