Should work fine. I usually use a crows foot anvil and just tap the post out but also have a puller that works. Another handy little tool that people use is a pry bar. A couple tiny pry bars with spacers placed under the bars when needed will lift it right off. They also work well for removing cannon pinions. Paint can pry bars used for removing lids work great. I think you can get them at Home Depot or any paint store for next to nothing.
