    I'm changing the timing chain and got the crank pulley off with a puller but
    getting the new one on is not as easy. Is there a special tool that you
    need to use to pound it on with ? I used a piece of pcv to get it half way
    on, but I something more solid that doesn't give.
    Thanks for any help.

  2. You can try heating it in an oven and it should expand enough to slip on.
    You don't have to heat it that much.

    I had to use a soldering torch to heat it for a few seconds.

    You want to be careful doing this as you might mess up the heat
    treatment of the chain. Better to use an oven as Ted said to give even
    and fairly well controlled heat.
