    OK, I give, how do you get the idler gear that goes from the cam to the oil pump off of an 8BA block?
    I've done 59A-B's many times and they just fall off when you pull the back cover, but this is the first 8BA I've torn down. There are threads in the center of the flange that holds the gear on, is this for a puller?

    I use a slide hammer with 3/8 - 16 stud. It's a light press into the block, so it comes out fairly easy. Or you can drive it out with a punch from the valley side of the block.

    Thanks, I didn't want to go at it blind and damage something.

    I agree with pat--I use the slide hammer as to me its the fastest and no chance of damaging any thing.
