Problem disassembling a WeedEater 1214 to replace the Hub Assembly

I have not been able to disassemble a very old WeedEater (brand name) 1214 (electric) to replace the Hub Assembly. It appears that the Drive Gear threads onto the motor shaft. I have tried to unscrew the Drive Gear with a wrench (using quite a bit of torque) but I fear I will break the plastic Drive Gear, and perhaps damage the motor shaft. I will appreciate any suggestions for freeing the Drive Gear without breaking it.

These yard tools take a lot of use, so when it is time to take one apart to repair the parts can be locked up tight. I don't blame you for not wanting to force the part and possibly break it. While you wait for the expert to review your model if you need to check the schematics or parts list I attached to the first link below for your model. If you would like to take the trimmer to a service center for repair, you can use the second link below. I hope you can salvage the trimmer. Once you get a good one you want it to last.
