Question about 1985 Pontiac Fiero
Help the timing has gone in my daughters 85 fiero 2.5 fi auto i peeled off the timing cover to find that the cam gear has lost teeth i purchaced a set of new gears but what i need to know is how to remove and install the new gears whithout removing the motor from car especally the cam gear which has a crack through the center of the gear
In a pinch, I have used a chisel to break the gear off. The body of the gear is made of composite material, but the centre of the gear is metal where it presses onto the cam. If you break the composite part off, you can use a chisel to remove the metal centre. Don't hit too hard as you may damage the cam. If you can carefully heat up the steel centre part, it may help to remove it.
