sometimes a little bit of heat helps - be careful, and a bigger hammer!! Be careful not to bend the Knuckle !! I supported the knuckle with a piece of heavy walled steam pipe located so that the crook ball joint slid into it. I had previously tried to use a 15 ton press, waste of time! it was ok for pressing the new joint in.
