Okay so I heard the dreaded scream from my 1999 3.8 engine and figured out at 127k miles the cam synch is going south. I pulled the plugs and got her to TDC, I saw the "tooth" in the center of the "window" and pulled the synchronizer. The directions say to transfer the oil pump shaft to the new synchronizer, but gives no information on how to remove it from the old synchronizer.. I know there is probably some stupid clip in there so I removed the pin from the gear and the gear won`t move. Do I push something into the little hole below the gear to release the shaft? There is some play in the shaft so I know its not stuck but I don`t want to break a clip I may need. I have searched all over for the answer to this and have found nothing.. Please Help.
