In your case, I would be holding one of the puller legs with a large shifter (Adjustable spanner) to stop it turning.

You may already know this but one of the holes in the flange is not directly across from the other one.  If you use the two bolt puller and use that hole it will not pull straight and it will not come off properly.  Be sure you are using the right holes.  The force screw should be precisely centered on the crankshaft.  In the picture it looks a bit like the screw is not centered.

Ok, to ensure that I'm using the right holes on the flange, I'll reset everything and set it up again. Better safe

Good idea with the wrench. Guess I can get it wedged in there. I also read that if you stick a screwdriver through the flywheel, it will keep the crank from turning. Sounds primitive though. I'm always afraid of damaging something.

The screw driver works as well.
