General

General

Crankshaft Gear Puller - A professional quality tool will solve the problem of removing the crankshaft timing gear- a gear which must be removed when an engine is rebuilt and the main bearings are changed. In operation this tool simply slips under the gear and with a wrench or impact gun the gear is easily removed. The highest quality standards are used in the construction of this tool for years of service for the do-it-yourself or the professional. Fits all 12-1600cc Beetle style engines- does not fit the larger 17-2000cc type 4 engines. Note DO NOT FORGET to remove the snap ring on the end of the crankshaft before using this puller as this is a sure way to ruin this gear puller and void your warranty.
