Does anyone have a brilliant idea for removing the crankshaft timing gear. You can see in the photo that it's spun on the crankshaft and sheared off the alignment pin. (Yes, it was a killer dowel pin that caused this!!!)
There's about a 1/8" to 3/16" space between the gear and the front of the block.
Is there a Cummins tool for this?
Here's a link to a similar tool a guy built to pull a BMW gear. I'm not going to pay a machine shop to build one but if anyone has already made one I'd be willing to pay to borrow it. http://www.isettadoc.com/files/gearpuller1.pdf
I'm going to pull this engine so if necessary I'll remove the crank and have a shop pull it off and press it back on with a new alignment pin.
