I've done it with two prying tools and a tap on the nut on the shaft, ya just gotta be careful not to f up the case casting. More pull less tap is better, I'd get the tool. I got one that would work at an auto parts store for $8, then got 2 nice long m6 bolts to add to the tool for compatibility $1.
I'd get one that is less janky than mine; and a flywheel remover too. In the long run it is worth $20 or so for the pair of these two specific tools.
