Trying to remove the cam pulley from the crankshaft on my early (short crank nose) Mazda Eunos with the engine in car. Have tried everything, made up a puller plate and used four 6mm x 50mm bolts into the tapped holes for the outer belt pulley to pull it off, poured boiling water on it to heat it up, all the usual tricks with no result. Any ideas from the forum?
Cheers,
Les

Sorted, leave the centre securing bolt in place but backed off a few threads and use the bolt head to press against. Pulled off no problem.
