Question Cam sprocket woes....

Should my camshaft sprocket (83 944) simply come off with a puller, or is there some trick to this? It won't budge...


Thanks in advance,

Tom

Did you take the bolt out of the center? There is also a sleeve that is shaped similar to a nut that slips on, it has to come off as well. The sprocket is keyed on. It may just need a little persuasion if the key way has corroded a bit. Use some PB Blast and let it soak a while and try again.

When you finally strip out the bolt holding the sprocket....

You can drill it out.......

The bolt is a 12 pt bolt or a triple square. Check with a parts store, from what I understand they carry the tool. Make sure the tool is fully seated befor turning. Also you will need to hold the cam with I think a 32 mm wrench.

Got it out...turns out that the cam-rotor adapter was stuck in there, and I couldn't even see the cam bolt. And Autozone carries the tool, it comes in a set that will also fit the flywheel bolts if anybody's interested. Thanks for all your help.
