Re: [T3] Crank gear puller

2 jaw pullers dont work well. Besides, they usually put marks on the gear
teeth. There are 2 different styles that I use. The one that I prefer is to
find someone that has a hydraulic press and pay them a couple bucks to pull
it off for you. The next is one that I bought for about $25 about 15 years
ago. It is designed specifically for the AC VW's. It is has horse-shoe
shaped piece that go that goes under the gear, and a couple pieces that go
up from that to a crossbar that has a threaded screw that is used to press
against the end of the crank.

I have scanned it into the computer so if you want to see it, I can email
you direct.
