Default Crankshaft sprocket puller?

So I finally got my timing cover off and I am going to install a new double roller chain and remove the WP drive, how do you take off the crankshaft sprocket? This is just in time too b/c the chain was actually a bit loose

It is normal for the chain to be loose on a used stock timing set. you can use a 2 or 3 jaw puller. You will have to use a socket, coin, etc to keep from damaging the threaded hole in the front of the crankshaft. They sell pullers just for this but if you are in any kind of hurry just use the 2 or 3 jaw puller.

What is a sprocket coin and where do I get one? I have a 3-jaw and I thought it might possibly work.

I believe he is talking about a socket or a coin anything to keep the puller from pushing into the threads on the end of the crank

it doesnt take much forced to get that sprocket off unlike the hub. it comes off pretty easy with just a regular puller

Nope. Just make sure you push it on evenly.
