428 SCJ Counter Weight is Stuck

I am trying to pull the counter weight from the crackshaft on my 428 SCJ and it will not come free. I have soaked it with liquid wrench, put a muffler clamp on it to be able to have something to pull on beside the counterweight ear, but it will not come. I even tried heating it with a heat gun and tapping it with a hammer. Any suggestions?

Take it to a local machine shop and they'll pull it off with a press. I wouldn't bang on it with a hammer It might change the way the crank is balanced. I don't really know that for sure...that just how I think and comprehend.

You'll need an acetylene torch to heat it. It's supposed to slide off the crank snout. When reinstalling use anti-seize on the crank snout and keyway. Also watch when/ if you take it to a shop. If they bust off the counter weight you're SOL. What about a bearing puller? I don't know your expertice.
