Frost Free Hydrant problem


I have a Simmons frost free hydrant that is working, but I want to replace the rubber plunger since it is getting old and winter is coming on. The problem is I can't extract the pump rod, no matter how hard I pull on the thing it won't budge upward past the point where the hyrdant is open and water flows. Does anyone know of a pump rod extractor tool or thoughts on how to get it out?
