A gear pullers is not the right tool for the job. Use a real prop puller. Tension it up, bang the hell out of it with a small sledge (the puller, not the prop!) and if the prop doesn't come loose, reposition it and try again. Pressure, persistence and patience are the keys. The prop will come off. BTW, using a torch should not be necessary.
