Default Removing Delco Flywheel

I need some help on how to remove the flywheel on a Delco 850 Light Plant. The gib key is removed and a liberal amount of Kroil has been applied to the crankshaft. I have repeatedly heated the hub red hot, used a wheel puller, and a slide hammer. The wheel puller and slide hammer jaws are attached to the back side of the flywheel. Thanks.

Thanks to all who read my inquiry. I was successful in removing the flywheel this afternoon. The problem was that the first inch of the crankshaft was pitted, preventing the flywheel from sliding off easily.

Larry: Usually, once you apply Kroil, you just sit back and listen for the "clunk" when your flywheel slides off the shaft.
