Timing chain removal

Trying to check oil galley plugs. How do I remove camshaft sprocket? A puller?

Just work both gears out at the same time. They'll just come off the end. You can use screw drivers or bars. Just go easy.

Usually a puller is not required, but be sure to slide off the cam and crankshaft gear along with the chain all at the same time. If you **** a gear or the chain even a small amount it will lock up, especially with a new chain, and not come off. Sometimes it requires a little persuasion to get the crank gear started, like a large screwdriver tapped between the gear and the block. Make sure the top of the key is parallel with the crank snout.
Edit: Oops Scotty beat me to it.

They feel like they're pressed on. I'll give it another shot

They are a tight slip fit. I have never needed a puller.

No Galley Plugs= a good way to wipe out a cam, lifters and cam bearings. Might as well pull the motor and check the rear plugs as well.

That was the first problem, I primed the oil pump and was missing in oil galley plug at the rear of the block. That led me to believe that the fronts were missing

Motor came from a shop in Sacramento, CA. Rebuilt about 4 years ago. I have the paperwork on it. I need to go there and burn that place down.

Shop must have really disliked the customer or were really incompetent or both.
Edit: are they still in business?
