i bought a new engine for my truck when it started making funny noises in the morning, now it is missing bad so im puting a cam and new gaskets in to the new one, the timing gears are almost impossable to get off, theres no bolt holes to attach a puller, and no room behind the gear to place a puller on. does anyone know how to get the gear off the crank?
