Spun Prop - Hub removal Help!

Hi all,

I spun a prop on Sunday, well the hub anyway, I have ordered a new hub and tried to remove the old one tonight but its seems to be stuck all the plastic has turned to dust see pic 7. I now cant seem to remove the brass end picture 6 and have a metal centre bit picture 4 that rotates with the brass bit, not sure if the picture 4 metal is supposed to be part of the prop or hub the diagram is useless, have tried hitting with hammer and tried separating brass splined end pic 7 from metal in picture 4 to no avail any help please!

The splines on the outside of the brass are likely twisted. Find a tube larger than the brass hub that the prop boss will sit on. Then drift it out from the rear.
