    I'm replacing the timing chain set on SBC, I guess I had never done it myself and had the gear pulled while the crank was in the shop.:confused:

    I always use a 2 jaw puller, when needed.

    Yea, now I'm remembering, the puller with legs screwed on, not the flopping links kind. OK, thanks guys, I'm moving again.:D

    I use a 3 jaw puller, remember too not to junk the threads on the crank. I use a spare bolt with a pilot drilled in the head for the puller to seat.

    not a bad idea. i just had to pull the one off of my old 2.4 crank for my Grand Am yesterday. my 3 jaw puller has a pointed end, or i can change it to a flat end, i used the flat end on the end of the balancer bolt. had a hell of a time getting it started. pointed end with a pilot hole would've been MUCH easier.
