I'm trying to change out my front cam seal on the EA82T and I can't for the life of me get the timing belt gear off.

The cam pulley came off no prob with a quick engine bump, and I've tried gentle prying and tapping to try and loosen up the TB gear but no dice. It is supposed to just pull of isn't it?

Any good tricks to get the darn thing off?

Are you talking about the two timing belt drive cogs on the front of the crankshaft?

 

Try shooting with some penetrating oil and whacking them a bit more. They can be problematic at times. Maybe a small puller would work?

Yup, that's what I'm talking about.

Tried the penetrating oil with no luck. I'll try some more and let it sit overnight.

Thanx

She's good & stuck.

 

Borrowing a puller from a friend tomorrow - is this normal??? I thought they were supposed to come off easily, or maybe with a little persuasion, but it's really on there tight.

Yes , it's normal. Some PB Blaster (be really really careful where that goes), three hours and a good rubber hammer should do the trick if you don't get your hands on that puller.
