Got that, the issue is I had to remove the gear box for the vehicle and I am having a difficult time cause it wants to spin and it is providing quite a bit of resistance

Alright so its out of the vehicle have you tried to put a piece of pipe over the end of the arm so one person can hold the pipe while the other uses the puller?Also some penetrant would help also.
