gear puller? Sad

I have a 1.5 inch shaft with two sealed bearings about 6 inches apart on the shaft, and a 6 inch wheel hub, all factory installed. The hub has never been removed, now over 25 years old. A 6 inch gear puller won't move the bearings along the shaft. Any ideas on how to get this bad bear off?

I was thinking I may be able to breach the bearing seal, then squirt WD-40 inside the hub colar that houses the two bearings. I plan to replace the bearing anyway. Is this my solution?

I'd break out the oxy/acet torch and a small cutting tip.  You can probably  nip enough of the races out to have enough room to remove the balls or rollers 1 at a.time-after several come out the hub should come off leaving only the inner races on the shaft which if you are proficient enough you can cut off with the torch.  Maytag

Thanks. I figured it was time for "seize and destroy!"
