I think there's a tool that you can use to press it off.  Seems like I remember someone posted a pic of it.
Have you tried lifting the thruster from below and pulling down hard and fast?  I believe that is what Amel (?Olivier) suggested a few years ago.
I wouldn't cut the shaft until every other avenue had failed.

Hi Andrew

We have  the version with the 4 screws holding it to the iron flange. I've been fighting with this for a long time and it never moved a millimeter.push,pulled,torqued,heated....screamed at it too..that's why i'm at cutting the tube and sleeving it afterwards.Would you have some pics of the inside of the tube or the dismantled motor.
Thanks for your advice
