If you got the nut off that means you got the washer off as well, yes? Then there is nothing left siezing the prop to the shaft. Are you using a prop puller? If so, keep at it. Pressure, Patience & Persistance are what will get the prop off. Switch puller positions relative to the prop often and beat the living hell out of the puller with a hammer. Tension and vibration are key. The prop will
come off and don't worry about damaging the shaft. You won't.
