Sparticus - you're not the first to suggest it. I suppose I'm keen to do it because it is designed to come off and some day I'll be the unfortunate one doing it, if as you say, a seal needs to be replaced or whatever. Plus, I'd like to be able to do it. At the heel of the hunt, I'm doing the service to learn something, not save money or time.

Of course, saving the money is nice

3 legged puller, as others have advised.

Don't go mad with the centre bolt - apply a bit of pressure and then tap the centre bolt with a hammer in the direction of the prop shaft. The whole thing will come away and land on your foot.
