Removing cam drive gear.

Post by RI Scout » Mon Nov 16, 2009 7:25 pm

Im tearing down the 201 motor tonight to start the rebuild, and having a fight with getting the camshaft drive gear off, its seems like its stuck on its keyway (yes the retaining bolt is out). Its made of a plastic like material almost like bakeolite, and I dont want to damage it. Anybody got any tips for this situation?

Thanks in advance.

Well I got it. First I had to remove the cam retaining, and back plate bolts thru the holes in the gear to get some space behind the gear. Then found some plates that fit to spread the load out on the fiber gear, drilled and tapped them to recive the bolts on one of my pullers, and presto with a pop the gear came off with no damage. As they say...patent pending. :D
