    This may be a stupid question, but did you remove the set screws?

    Man. I had the same problem on 1 and what I did was lightly sand the shaft infront of the cone with emory cloth and oil. I then got my channel locks and turned the cone while pulling in the direction away from the pump. I finally got it move enough to get a screw driver behind it and was able to pry it out an inch or so, then it came off. I then cleaned the outside of it with a wire wheel and the inside with the emory cloth.

    It took me a while, but I got it off.

    Kerry Hibdon posted about a year ago that there is a speed gain if you leave it off. Just be sure to use anti-seize on the impeller threads.
