Obviously I haven't seen your installation (and I'm not sure about outer and innner nuts) but whenever I have removed a prop that has been there a while it does take a bit of grunt.

the usual method is to take two lump hammers and hit them at the same time against the hub from opposite sides. This applies a shock to the prop without applying a side load on the shaft.

Only really works with two bladed props, as you can't get into the space with a three.

You do need a really good puller too.

I've seen recommendations to apply heat (there being quite a difference in expansion rates of the shaft and the prop), but I've never had to do that.

Clearly that should be done with great care if at all!
