Cam Gear Removal

This weekend I decided to do the ever so easy KDP fix. No problem, pull the timing cover and tap the pin in, tab it, and re-install rite??? Wrong. The KDP had already fallen out and taken my timing case with it, only i couldnt see that because the a$$ hole before me did a nice repair job with jb weld and factory case paint so you would never know. The good news is everything minus the timing gear case is in good shape but I am having problems pulling the cam gear off. I have tried 3 jaw pullers on the inside of the 3 holes and have had no luck. I have not tried to pull from the outside of the gear yet because I do not want to hurt the teeth, and no i dont realy want to pull the cam. Anyone have any advice other than pull the cam or buy a $250 cummins cam puller??

Where do you hook it to? There isnt enough room for me to get the jaws of the puller around behind the center of the gear and I was worried about to much stress trying to pull from the outside of the gear

My puller hooks behind the center no problem.
I wouldn't even consider pulling it from the outside, it's certain to break.

time to find a different puller, or some different arms for yours.

x2 on not trying to pull it from the outside, thats just wayyy to risky in so many different ways!

Yeah thats what I was figuring and thats why I didnt even want to try it from there, no leverage anyway. As for the pullers I have tried several different ones but I dont seem to have one that is narrow enough to squeze behind it to pull it, I guess Ill just bust out the grinder on the arms I dont care to much about to narrow em down and flaten em out a little and see if that works. I had a guy tell me to heat it with a torch a little bit and that will help it come off too, any thoughts on that method? I was just worried to much heat would warp something that didnt need to be warped

Why not just pull the cam? That's the teched procedure. Curious how you plan to get the gear back on even if you can get it off?

I dont have the time or the patience rite now to pull everything else apart especialy if it works by just pulling off the gear, I havent heard anything bad about it yet so its worth a shot

Good luck, it took a lot of heat and a 20ton press to get my cam gear off. I put the gear in the oven and used the press to get it on my new cam. Its not that hard to pull the cam and i bet you've already wasted more time screwin with the gear puller than it would have taken to pull the entire cam out. Oh well, to each his own.

Took me like a half hour, maybe 45min to get all that stuff off the front of the truck, trust me it makes it sooo much easier to work on
