Now I can't get the IGN Rotor off!

Well, now I can't get the rotor off. The bolt blasted off with a burst of the air wrench easy enough. I'm using the pulller that came with the bike which has a Baja Designs kit installed. I'm torqing the dailights out of it. All I'm accomplishing is mushrooming the threads on the end of the crank and pulling the threads off the 3 screws that thread into the rotor.
I was able to grind the end of the crank a bit tapered so I can get the nut on again, and the threads in the rotor are still okay. So I can give it one more shot with the puller.
I think the guy who did the Baja Kit mangled the key or something cause that "sucka" is tight!
Any suggestions. Can I heat the rotor a bit or will that damage the stator underneath?

I left the nut on the shaft to clean up the threads when I removed the nut.
Now I need to gigure out how to get the cam chain off.

Hey, got any advise on putting a new piston and rings in a used ( but good) cylinder. Should I scotchbrite the nicasil to help the new rings seat?
