Help with fork seals

Trying to remove old fork seals on Barbie#2. I tried the PSI method but nothing budged. 120 psi for 16 hrs. Yes I removed the retaining clip.
Any suggestions?

Man, those seals must really be in there. The PSI worked for me, even on the 87' I rebuilt. May have to do more than 120 psi, instead of constant pressure on it, I did really high psi in short bursts, like 10-20 sec. at a time and "POP" don't have your hands too close to the seal either

Got them out! 180ish psi and some heat. I don't think they've been changed since new. 1994 w 73k kms. Crud and thick stuff all over the place. Still looking for fork caps.....
