Once the puller has tension on the prop, tapping on the shank of the prop will break the corrosion between it and the shaft. Light tapping for a slightly prolonged period is best; you're breaking corrosion, not rearranging the metal. Place the retaining nut flush with the end of the shaft (protects the threads) and give the end a whack while under tension. If it doesn't come loose, put more tension on the puller and resume tapping on the prop.
