Ariens Snowblower question

Hi, I have an older (1976) snowblower, model # 910995. In the course of doing some much needed maintenance, I came across a small problem. I had removed the shear pins while greasing the rakes to distribute the grease, and found that one of the rakes is frozen to the shaft. Is there any way to free it? I sprayed all of the openings with PB and am letting it sit. I have tried to move it with a block of wood and a BFH, but it didnt budge. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks and happy thanksgiving!

Sounds like you need heat from an oxy-accetlyne torch to free it up.
