Sweet job. Cool puller.Figured the issue here would be breaking the 'bond' between the Inlet Housing Neck (broken off in the water bypass bore) and inside the bypass itself. That area is not the greatest for applying heat so I decided to just use mechanical means.
The easiest way I could see to 'tear' the sealant was to simply take a punch and gently drive the piece farther into the bore. That worked as planned but I still needed to decide how to extract the piece.

I remembered that I have a slide hammer with an I.D. puller attachment which I used to pull the remaining neck.

So....got the damn thing out and the bore all cleaned up without too much fuss.
