    It is because it is pressed on. If you took the pin/pins out and it is still not coming off then either heat it of use a press.

    Like others have said, it is press fit. They sell tools designed for removing it if you don't have access to a press. Google "distributor gear puller".

    Another method is to use a bearing splitter with a screw-on puller (that screws into the bearing splitter).
