    Get the puller threaded in with a little anti-sieze on the threads and get it pretty tight, let it sit a minute and pop it with a hammer. You may want to use a brass hammer if you have one or a block of hard wood as to not mar up the end of the puller. A few tighten and smack sequences usually does the trick.
    Polaris...it IS the way out!

    '98 XLT, had the same problem. Tried the hammer. Tried a 3' cheater. No luck. Here's what worked. Tip it on its side (I had the engine out, but you can tip the whole sled.) Put two or three raps of teflon tape around the puller threads. Fill the shaft with boiling water. Put the puller in and tighten up. Tip back horizontal and get the puller nice and tight. Use a heat gun on the clutch between the two sheaves. Stay away from the shaft end. Mine went BANG and slid across the garage floor.
