"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?

I mean a length of pipe on the end of the breaker bar that is turning the socket so you can get some mechanical advantage. You want a 4' breaker bar, not a 24" one.

Ah I see.

By my math that would give me leverage of somewhat above 800 pound-feet of torque which would roughly translate to 6,400 pounds of force pulling outward on that hub (after frictional loss in the threads). Something tells me that I'll regret applying 6,400 pounds of force to any part of my poor Outlook. I'll probably stick with my 24" and keep my ambitions around 2,000 pounds or force.
