Default Crankshaft pulley

have to change the head gasket in my wifes 08 cruiser. I have tried to remove the crankshaft pulley but it will not pop free. I have tried to heat it with no success. I bent the post on the three arm puller. Any Ideas how to remove this.

Chrysler's puller SUCKS, it doesn't include correct rods, so people end up damaging crank bolt hole.
As in the photo, I'd use a longer bolt. Passenger's engine mount bolt from Neon is perfect.

Here's a how-to:
