    Before you do any more, remove the crank puller and check in the openings to see if there are washers inside. You must remove the washers or the puller won't work. If the holes are clear, the required force to pop the crank arms loose may still be quite high.

    +1 Check for washers first. The force to remove some crank arms can be substantial.

    Make sure the threads on the tool are well seated into the crankarms, or you risk the tool coming out and the crank threads being stripped.
