i am having a problems removing the crankshaft gear off the end of the crank,

i have made up a puller but as the gear is so close to the casing there isnt much room behind it for anything substantial behind it.

is there a puller made for this job.

or anyone got any ideas ?

i have tried heating it up with no sucsess.....it is realy stuck fast.

Stripy, I've just had a look and the holes on the crankshaft sprocket are M5. Mine was very tight but I persevered with 2 big flat blade screwdrivers, gently prying opposite sides, but it was tight all the way along the woodruff keys.

A favour too if I might ask - I need a couple of pics of your power steering pump set up, if you're not too busy ;)

threads are as Mo says -- M5, I got my timing kit off ebay.

you'll have to obtain 2 long M5 bolts & adapt your existing puller.

May be better Ralph, to use 3 bolts as there are 3 holes pitched around the sprocket.

Get some thick steel plate, drill a centre hole and 3 holes for the M5 bolts and then use a suitably large bolt and nut to draw it all off - protecting the crank nose with a sacrificial bit of plate - I made a puller for mine, took a long time too since I pinched the steel from work and forgot it's origin - Rolled Homogeneous Armour - unsurprisingly pretty bloody hard! Wasn't pretty but worked, anything else is less than certain and may damage something expensive.
