Hahahaha... oh wow. I love dizzies. I had so much fun trying to get mine out...







I find the best thing to do is get a chisel under the bottom lip of the dizzy and hammer down on it with something. But it seems like you've already tried that.

I can only suggest you try rotating the crank slightly side to side (using a breaker and a large socket) to see if you can shake it loose that way :)
