I dunno, but I have had 100% success using an ordinary bolt and stacks of washers. The key is getting it spaced so that you have most of the threads in the pin filled with your pull bolt and quit turning when you feel it bottom out.

I suspect your pulling tool may have bottomed out too.

I used a bolt from the thermostat housing as my pulling bolt.
