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

I <3 internet arguments.
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.
