Just a thought, Bill. Did you repeatedly whack the tensioned puller with a hand sledge hammer? Sometimes that does the trick.

Thanks much for the photos.  They me to visualize what is stuck on what.  Unfortunately, even with a 6,000 pound hydraulic puller left on overnight, the gearbox would not come loose.  The pin from the winch is obviously galvonically seized on the gearbox.  Thanks again for sending the pics.
