How to remove Yokes?

I have tried a slide hammer, sledge hammer and all the &%*^(*$$ words I can come up with and still no luck. So does someone know a trick to get the yokes off of the front and rear 3rd member's?

I had one a few months ago that I finally had to use a 3 jaw gear puller. Most of the time the pinion flanges are relatively easy to get off, but sometimes you come across one that is a real pain.

Try using a bit of heat where the lock washer hits the flange next to the shaft . Don't use too much or you'll fry the seal . If you've already hit the end of the shaft hard , replace the bearings and races on the pinion and reset the gears or you'll wish you had . If you do remove or change flanges , the pre-load has to be reset on the pinion bearings .

Why can't just one thing be simple on these zuk's? My bronco yoke came right off and the new one went right on with no problem. Oh well, I will try again this weekend.
