The flywheel does not want to come off at all. Tried the flywheel puller, tried leaving it on for days then adding penetrating oil and retightening. Theres a bit of rust there.
Would some heat applied to the flywheel, clutch plates help to loosen things up?
Any other suggestions would be very helpful.
Pictures are available if that would make things clearer.

As for removing it, you're doing the right thing, Get the puller on it, wind it up, and if it does not go, leave it for a while tight, and then come back pull a bit more, leave it etc etc..
Minidaves, has also suggested a 'tap' on the puller main bolt with a BFH, but if the engines in the car this may not be possible...
It'll come off eventually.

To add to what Guessworks and Minidaves suggest, use the BFH on the center of the puller. BUT, put a large pile of rags or carpets on the floor in front of the puller/flywheel and make sure you are standing to the side when striking. You don't want anything hitting you when it jumps off the crank.
by the way, this may sound like a stupid or obvious suggestion but make sure the center bolt and keyed washer aren't still there and/or tight. Pulling against them with or without the BFH won't work!
