Thanks for the information.

It's best to remove the complete camshaft assembly on a C13. I assume you just need the gear off as there is a problem with the front cover. Some folks try to use a finger puller and heat but it is very difficult to do that. It's much easier and safer to remove the complete camshaft assembly.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
