Try some wd40 and alot of elbow grease. Apply more leverage it should come out with sufficent force.

Heat!! got to get them hot to loosen the red loctite. Do not use it again, blue is a better choice if you must use loctite.

On the reinstall, marine grade grease is the easiest, when it comes to removal!
