I've beaten the crud out of the ball joints and used pickle forks, both did not work as well as a tip I got from a gumpy machinist. He told me to just smack the plate while holding the arm. The only way it works is if the plate "rings" when you hit it. You need 2-3 good wacks with a 20 - 24oz hammer. The vibration works it loose.

No kidding.
