Get a new puller
Leave the nut on a couple of turns
Crank down hard with the puller
Grab a big hammer and whack the side of the pitman arm by the splines a couple of times.
It oughta pop right off.

This method also works well for stubborn tie rod ends and stearing knuckles too.

make a second cut 180* from where your cut is then try to pull it off with a 3 jaw puller it'll come off like the panties on a whore .

Next time rent the puller from auto zone. The harbor freight puller is a pos. Tighten a little, hit with hammer. Tighten more, hit with hammer etc. until it comes off easy.
