Crankshaft timing gear removal

Post by Stoddy » Fri May 10, 2019 10:35 pm

Hi I'm replacing both timing gears. The big nylon wheel came off quite easily with two long screw driver one on each side. However the smaller wheel has a longer way to come of the shaft and keyway and isn't for budging. Is a puller required to remove this gear?

Thanks

Alan

sometimes they pull straight off, sometimes they need a puller.

Sometimes warming it up with a hot air paint gun works.

Heat didn't work but bought a puller and it worked a treat. Lower gear removed I expected to see a core plug but nothing. I read, or thought I had read there were core plugs behind the cover plate but the three I can see on the front of the engine are all higher up and accessible with only removing the alternator. Is this correct? Thanks

Thanks Jim. I saw that picture in a search earlier. I'm a numpty! I've stripped it further than I needed to. Oh well, at least I'm learning about the engine and I know what's been done.

Thanks again.

Alan
