Holding CV centrally in vice, try tapping the outer casting equally, ie; first  tap and  second tap 180 degree opposite side etc (bit of wd40 around spline area should also help).

Tap the outer back onto its seat/shoulder. Wipe the circlip groove clean and inspect for burring - remedy as needed.

Use copper faced hammer to smack the central shaft through, finish with brass or copper drift once itís flush.
