Have you tried sticking the bolt in the middle of the puller with a largish hammer? The shock might be enough to do it.

I meant Striking :oops:

Just winf the puller up so there is a fair bit of pressure and then strike the bolt on the puller sharply a few times.

Loads of heat will separate the different metals. Let it soak in WD40 when it's cold. Always have a fire extinguisher close by. It will come off.

Thanks for the reply’s Everybody I have got the hub off now plenty of heat and re-tapped the two bolt holes to M7 thread
Which ment the bolts on the puller didn’t rip out sorted.
