I've decided to overhaul my steering gear. It's the later version for an 8N. I have removed the steering wheel and the left steering arm, but I am struggling to remove the right arm. Lots of heat and penetrant oil - nope. Hitting with brass drift - nope. Two hammer technique - nope. I am frustrated. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

Extreme force always damages parts. So, nope to an anvil and sledge.

This got it off - Posi Lock 104 4" Reach, 0.5" - 5" Spread, 5 ton Capacity 3 Jaw Puller

Take tie rod loose at the lower end. When the box is off, if you need the arm off, lay it on an anvil or heavy support and do a modified two hammer technique with a sledge.

To get the arm off the box I use a Pittman arm puller... It may require some modifications... If they are tight that's a good thing if they are loose that's a bad thing... I have posted pix but can not locate them at this time...

"Two hammer technique"

You haven't whacked it hard enough using the "two hammer technique".
