Whilst it does have its uses for many things WD40 isn't much cop as a releasing fluid. Plusgas or Loctite's 'Freeze and Release' are both very good - I use both.
thats it plugas sh-t hot, theres another on youtube cutting down with a recipricating saw on a 90 leg doesnt take long.

I got it free last night. I cut away the rubber to reveal the brass ring. I hit it a few times with a cold chisel and hammer and it realeased. Having looked at the proximity of the seals to the gear box I would not recommend any type of heat to sort this problem out. It took about five firm blows to get the ring to release. No sign of corrosion and I do not believe that I did any damage to the gear box.

Not a woodruff key ( type found in steering systems hydraulic) it is a flat section on the shaft.

Glad you got it sorted. Yamaha, Mariner and Tohatsu 2-strokes still use the woodruff keys as far as I'm aware.
