You can not use a puller or beat on it or you will damage the hub or the c clip inside.
The best way is to use and old hub. You will need a long 3/4 or 1 inch bolt and 5 3/8 inch bolts.
You snug up the big bolt and then tighten the smaller ones in sequence. It brings it off real slow. Pull the bolt out that goes against the key and spray a lubricant in often I use PB blaster I think is the name.

Have you sprayed PB Blaster or some other like product in the set screw holes? There is either just one or two on the hub so that is ll you remove....Some are stubborn and some slide off easy.

Well you have a spare hub now for doing this in the future. But you got to get this hub off. You can also make up a piece of 1/2 inch steel to match the lugnut holes and a hole in the center for the big bolt and it will work. Your local fab shops should have scrap steel. Keep the hub when you get it off for a puller. You can get hubs on ebay reasonable just make sure it has the right number of lug holes and for the correct size axle. They come in 1'' and 1 1/8''

Good luck!!

The job of hub removal is one that I don't wish on anyone. On a recent removal, it took me over 2 hours to get the hub off with a puller as shown above. And that was after soaking it for a week in PB Blaster, and heating with a propane torch.

Patience, lot of patience.
