[200q20v] Help: crank seal removal without proper tool

I discovered this morning that the tool kit Blau rented to me for timing
belt replacement included the cam seal removal tool instead of the
forward crank shaft seal tool, although the new  seal itself is correct.
For about three hours I've been gingerly drilling, dremeling, and
pulling with an awl bent into a hook to no avail. Anyone have any
secrets to getting it out? I'm being very careful about not doing any
damage to the block surface where the seal sits.
