Unhappy Seized Prop

Any advice on removing a seized prop ? (no1 prop on a penta sp-c drive)
don't look like they have been off for a few years and they are well and truly "Stuck"......

been regularly soaked in penetrating oil over the past 2 weeks, Tried a "Puller" (and a Mallet ) but i think the bush is gonna give way long before there is any movement ...

Idea's ???

Can't even find a "schematic" of the lower unit .....

Worried about getting the gas bottles out yet... in fear of smelling them drive seals burning

Would love to but..

1 : There is major corrosion to the ring anode (behind the props) and i have a bright and shiny new one ....

2 : Would like to get the props "serviced" ...minor damage ( so far )

3 : Going by my track record (rocks/shopping trollys/drowning rib nobbers) they need to come off so i can fit a spare ..................

We had a seized one, broke a puller and in the end left in the company of a blowtorch for well over an hour!! Got it off in the end!!
