    Hi all,

    I'm rebuilding a 1988 2.3L turbo. I have the internals all put back together. My problem is, when I tried to pull the front Crank timing sprocket off to change the front seal, it wont move. I've tried heating, prying it, w/ no joy. There is a cast metal shield around the sprocket that prevents me from getting behind it with a puller. What do people use to get this sprocket off? I did a search to no avail....Thanks guys, love the forum
