What I have done in the past when I could not get a puller on is to use the split bearing puller like used on a press. Then use the puller on it. I will try and find a link to one if you are not sure what I mean

I have one I am not using, came off the race car. Too much weight to carry around a race track. Will need prep and paint.

Re: ignition condenser alternative?

You can replace the Lucas condenser with a Mallory or Delco unit if you make your own holder (not too hard). That will last as long as the old Lucas ones and years longer then the "overseas" ones available today
