Hi All,
I am in the midst of a brake job and can not get the rotor separated from the hub. I have looked the manuals and no insight there. The existing rotor looks to have a collar which the replacement does not. Pics on link below:

Any suggestions?

The hub should just be a bit of an interference (or years of rust) fit on the rotor, so you should be able to knock the hub through and out of the rotor.

That is what I thought and I am trying. Any suggestions on aggressive rust penetrants?
