We dont have any of those anymore but I used to get a sledge and hit the end of the axle that seemed to work for me.

find the split in the cone and hammer in a small flat blade screw driver a little bit and pull or turn them off the stud or an impact stud removal tool and just remove it as a unit or heat the cone up and give the axle a hit

I got a headache trying to figure out the same problem. I guess it's time to get some help from a friend.

otc 7077 is a piler set to remove cones , put nuts back on loose and rip it around the yard not sure if this would help axle cones loosening up

They sell a solid cone for those that make them easier to come off. We have also purchased a tool from Tiger Tool that makes it easier as well. It's a spring loaded pin that you attach to the hub and axle flange, then hit the pin with a sledge and it knocks it loose. https://tigertool.com/products/axle-shaft-puller

The solid cones are the way to go. We changed every vehicle we had with the split ones to the solid ones. No tool needed.
