Trying to replace the pinion seal and can't pull the yoke. I've broken a 2-jaw puller to get it loose but it will not budge.

    Maybe it's corroded to the pinion shaft. Some heat and penetrating oil (I like to use Mobil 1 for heated things) may help, along with a few taps with a soft mallet while the using a stronger puller.
