Take Note: if the crank sprocket gear is Stubborn I have seen Map Gas and i have seen holes drilled into front of gear, then Tapped and 2 bolt puller to remove the Sprocket but keep in mind your going to replace the pump so you can use a little force to get it to move just keep soaking with penatrating oil get it working back and forth....Hope this helps Oh yes Take Note: The converter Bolt Cover Will come out but the Engine - Transmission Spacer plate Will Stay in Place.I have seen tech take cutoff wheel and cut the engine Transmission Spacer Plate Where Starter Sits In And The left Side And Place it back into place where the bellhousing bolts hold it back in place but you should not have to do this..just thought it intersting...Dyi Nissan Xterra 3.3liter V6 Oil Pump R&R......
