cam gear,how to remove

can the cam gear be removed from the cam on the 6.7?? and if so how ?
have a buddy with a 6.7, that needs to change out the front cover, and needs to remove the cam gear, it looks like its keyed to the cam, and looks like it could be removed with out pulling the cam out. i guess he has tried but can't seem to remove it. i took a pic with my phone, of what i am talking about, but i am not sure how to post pics.the front cover that he needs to replace is where the CP3 bolts up to.

I don't know anything about the 6.7's but on the 5.9's it's pressed on and you simply remove the cam to change the gear case. Even if you did get it off with the cam in the engine you wouldn't get it back on.

A blue truck, and a silver truck.

Cam gear is pressed on. You'll have to pull the cam to change the gear case. It's quite a bit of work but pulling a cam is pulling a cam is pulling a cam on any cummins. If you find a procedure for a 5.9 it's fairly close to the same, but a few different bolt sizes and torques.

To do it per cummins you have to pull the cam out a lil bit which means having the special tools to raise the lifters off the cam. To do it in the engine, you will need a modified 3 jaw puller and a torch and will have to be heated super hot and smacked on with a hammer to get it back on. It is doable, but if you're not confident, I wouldn't try it alone. I've done it several times on 5.9s without pulling the cam. Otherwise you'll need special tools from the dealer.

Supertech, I know this is an old thread, but when removing the cam shaft on a 3rd gen commonrail, will it clear the lower radiator support coming out? I ask b/c I am thinking that my 2004.5 is leaking between the gear housing and the block on the AC compressor side. If so It looks like I will have to pull the cam to replace the gasket.
