Nearly the same. Yeah I've had to fight rotors off of all kinds of stuff, even my Yukon that spent its first 157,000 miles in Northeastern Ohio. Never had a fight like this one though.

Okay tried it, while working on other stuff. Around six hours worth with a reapply-and-twist every 45 minutes or so. For my twists I went a half turn at a time, and started with getting it snug then adding two full turns (which is good for about 1/8") . It started out tight, and after ten half turns it was uh-oh-am-I-going-to-break-something tight. No luck. Pounded on it a bit since I was there. Still no luck.

Creaking sound (I think from rotor) as I released the puller when I was done.

I agree. That creaking sound makes me think the e-brake shoe is preventing the rotor from releasing. Try removing the e-brake mechanism.

I understand why someone would think that, but the rotor isn't moving at all on the hub. If it was the e-brake shoe it would move a little. And I would have pulled something apart with how hard I was pulling.

By the way, the 6 hours of leaving the puller under pressure wasn't what I had in mind. I left mine for 2 days with spraying and re-tightening every once in a while, until the rotor broke free. At a minimum, leave it overnight.

Ah that makes sense. Maybe this weekend I'll start it Friday evening when my bride gets home and keep it going until last thing Sunday.

Sounds like a plan. Tap on it once in a while with a hammer as well. I assume you are using a cheater bar on the puller???

Yeah definitely tap. With both hands. And a temper. Can only help.

"using a cheater bar on the puller" . . . I assume you mean a breaker bar on the socket that is turning the hex head of the puller?
