Default Re: Gear puller tool stinks!

Okay, I got to trying to pry it off.

I got my friend to use two thick screwdrivers to apply equal pressure to both sides of the gear. I tapped one of the screwdrivers with a hammer and CRACK, a piece of the rim on the engine that goes around the small gear busted off. So it looks like I won't be doing that again.

Meanwhile, I decided to try the puller again, but this time I used some blue thread locker to see if maybe that will keep it in enough so I can pull out the gear. I'm gonna wait a little while longer for the thread locker to harden before I continue.
