A bigger hammer!

Kidding... Sort of!

It can be a real PITA, even after you've had it out before and thought you were going to make things easier for the next time by adding some grease to the shaft!

Last time I sprayed some WD40 on it. Then I drilled a hole in a 2X4. Next, I fed the shaft through the hole and the used it like a slide hammer. I kept whacking the inside of the plate against the wood using the shaft to pull it. Eventually, after a beer or two, it came apart. Not sure if I am making any sense, but that's what I did. Good luck!
