    It's been a while since I did mine, but I believe we just use a pry bar and gently worked it out.

    Use a three jaw puller. It's not that hard and you might as well change it since you have it apart.

    it is pressed on. go to the parts store and rent a gear puller. make sure you have a balancer install tool also so you can press the new gear on. dont hit it with a hammer.

    Try the puller or putting 2 pry bars on opposite sides, doing it with only one might just be cocking it.

    Let us know how it went.
