I used a hammer and a solid round piece of stainless I had about the same diameter as the shaft. Will post pics when I get done.
For future reference I would recommend a brass drift or punch if you are going to use the hammer method to extract the pump shaft. Using a softer metal drift will have a lesser chance to damage the shaft when compared to a SS drift.
