Ready to Tackle Timing Case. What Pullers Needed?

I'm going to start taking the truck apart tonight so I can replace the cracked timing case.. I plan on pulling the cam gear off as that seems like a far better option for me to handle. We have mulitple types of pullers here at work and I plan to borrow a bearing heater to put the gear back on..

Question, what kind of puller should I use? Something that bolts to the gear, or something with jaws that grab around the gear? I dont want to damage it. Is much force needed to pull it off, how tight of a fit?

Thanks

there are no bolt holes in the cam gear you will need a jaw type puller and you can use a steeringwheel puller for the pump gear if you dont have a pump gear puller

Sounds good, I know we have many different sized jawed/hooked pullers so I'll grab several.

I'm assuming from what i've read I just have to heat the gear up. I use the bearing heaters at work daily and thats nice and easy, no torch or oven bs. Then slide it onto the shaft no issues.

Three jaw puller works.
Make sure to remove the lift pump and use a bar to hold the cam when slipping the gear back on or you might have to pull the engine.
