How do I pull the crankshaft timing gear on a 1996 Toyota Tercel


Asked by Oct 27, 2014 at 11:02 PM about the 1996 Toyota Tercel 2 Dr DX Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have tried heating it penatrating oil and prying . There is no room for a jawed pull and no
holes for the the other kind.

1 Answer


Check to see if there is a key-way on the crankshaft, if not then the gear was sweated onto the crankshaft from the factory and you won't be able to get it off without pulling the crankshaft and having to done, if there is a key-way then a sharp rap with a cold chiesel right on top of the key will split the gear and off it comes. I hope you didn't damage the crankshaft by heating it, forged cranks don't do well with too much heat.
