It's not the hanger that needs to be strong, all it does is provides some inertia while the hammer delivers the impact. The puller can only put a steady force on it, there's no dynamics involved. If this doesn't work at first, you can try putting a brick or something heavy in the coat hanger to give it more inertia - this just means that the flywheel has added weight so it would rather not move with the crankshaft when you hit it. This will deliver a lot of force to the flywheel / shaft joint but it's all based on the principle of impulse and momentum, and it doesn't create as much force in the coat hanger as a puller would on itself. I bent the puller arm made out of 1/8" by 1" steel trying to get the flywheel off, and then got it off with the 1/16" coat hanger and the hammer. It's the same principle that makes it easy to get wheel nuts off of a car with an impact gun you can hold in your hands easily while you would have to jump on the end of a wheel wrench to get the same nuts off.
