Cant get the hub off the CV shaft?

Murrays has a loaner tool system. DO NOT use a hammer and socket.

You can borrow the proper tool free. All they want is a deposit.

Ive always used a hammer, but in some cases I've used a 3 arm puller (4x4 2500 GM with the DUMBEST front rotator set up I have ever seen)

X2 on the special tool.....you need something like this - the hub shark

I'm pretty damn sure thats how the older escort hubs are set up.....may be wrong though. If it is set up like this, I dont even know how you'd use a hammer...it's not a unit-bearing set up IIRC

The 3 arm pullers can be dangerous IMO. I hope you use gloves and eye protection.

Most of the time the hub is soo seized that the puller kicks sideways and sometimes breaks the arm. That acts like a slingshot and can maybe even break your hand.

Good luck.
