If there's room, (after you take the prop off), then let the shaft and flange slide back to the stuffing box. Heat the flange and tap/pound on the shaft inside the flange as best you can. If that doesn't work, try to find a bearing puller that will clamp onto the flange and put presure on the shaft.
