Thanks for the link, I am going to order a rod. I knew I could source what I needed; I was just hoping to find something that I needed OFF THE SHELF. I did manage to find a brass hammer, so, a bit of heat, some PB Blaster and the brass hammer has yielded movement! Not much, maybe 1/8".

The mechanic at the shop suggested moving the rod back and forth, as opposed to trying to keep pounding one direction. After he said that it seemed so obvious! Yet I would have done EXACTLY what he said not to do. But based on what I am feeling now, I think I'll have to get a piece of round bar to get it extracted.

I'll keep ya posted.

And the engine is in my garage and that feels really good!

I'm not a damn animal!!   Grin

But I do have a LOT of time spent riding in the rain. And HARD rain at times.

So, I am getting no movement at all using a hammer and a block of wood (what I have available). It seems that a brass punch as big as I need it is not going to be readily available. What are your thoughts on getting a brass hammer, setting that against the shaft and striking the brass hammer with another hammer?

Additionally, is it OK to hit the area with some liquid wrench and let it sit up?

Yes, and yes. It'll take whatever it takes.

The only downside to the brass hammer is if it needs to be driven after you break it loose.

Brass bar not available?... https://smile.amazon.com/Pieces-BRASS-SOLID-ROUND-Lathe/dp/B01F80WOZU/ref=sr_1_4?crid=3GARVCQCN81VX&keywords=3%2F4+brass+bar+stock&qid=1674873560&sprefix=3%2F4+brass+bar+%2Caps%2C113&sr=8-4
