I screw a deck screw into the rubber part, around the hub, then grab the head with a pair of plyers and pull.

Yup, the WD-40 works every time for me.

You shouldn't have to say this, but don't grab the impeller while you are turning the engine over. I watched a guy change out an impeller on his old 78 S&S and then he tried to check the belt tension with his fingers....while it was running. It wasn't pretty.

No need to lube it up...she won't care. Just take 2 needle-nose pliers grab slats on opposite sides of each other and give them a tug. Pops right out. Then when you go to put it back in, put some white lithium grease on the shaft before you slide it in. Easy Peasy Japanease.

Almost. It's not too bad as the side panels beside the engine come outand I do have room to kneel beside the engine.
