  1. outside now trying to take off the gear on the distributor that runs off the cam its a 90 GT i took the pin out but the gear is not sliding down....

    any help would be great guys!!!
  2. try heating it.
  3. it there a c clip ring im not seeing of something?
  4. 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.
  5. yeah did the heat thing and no dice... going to try the press tomorrow
  6. 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".
  7. Another method is to use a bearing splitter with a screw-on puller (that screws into the bearing splitter).
