You'll need a press. Before you press it off though, take some measurements so you can make sure the the gear is sitting in the same place.

Any machine shop should be able to press the old one off and the new one on for you pretty cheaply.

Use a press. The new gear comes with instructions and the specs for installing the gear in the right place.
