Help Removing Pinion Yoke - GM 10-Bolt

Ok, I finally got the pinion nut off. Big deal right?

Anyway, now I can't get the yoke off. It's basically just "stuck" on there. Been there since 1972. I tried hammering the pinion shaft inward to break it loose from the yoke. No luck. I don't want to damage it or the threads.

How about using a puller? That would probably work, but are there pullers for pulling yoke's? I've used lots of pullers but never seen one for a yoke.

any suggestions.

2 jaw puller

try a 2 jaw puller. you can borrow them from autozone or advance auto. Youll probabally need to get one wit hlonger arms, Its not good to beat on the pinion too much.

Use a harmonic balancer (two hole) puller. DO NOT beat on the flange.
