I tried doing the same thing, I got the pin of but I could take of the gear. There is a tool to take it off, but you need to find a machine shop to put holes in your new dist. gear. The one I bought from FRP didnt have one. Ask you machine shop and see if you even have to. It should cost more than like $30

Good luck

James

If you do it yourself, make sure you go get some new roll pins. Puter did mine for me and he had a press. Mark the housing and gear before popping it off as it is tricky to get it all lined back up and you definitely dont want to have to press it off and on multiple times. If you don't want to fool with it, do as these guys say. Take it to a machine shop and let them do it. The charge would be minimal I am sure.
