Frozen Prop

Trying to remove the folding prop off the shaft to replace with a fixed one. Any suggestions on ways to free a stubborn prop. Trying to avoid pulling the whole shaft out since involves dropping the rudder (which also involves having the yard pick up the boat to take it off). Using a 3 part wheel puller and already broke a finger on one. No budge. Was thinking of heating it. Other option take a sawzall and try to slice in two sections. Any ideas appreciated. Should have known this haulout was going too good.
