You need a 2 jaw puller to remove this, be careful don't stick any thing behind the gear is the oil pump and very delicate.

try renting a tool from you local parts store. i just did the heads on mine so that was one of the things i had to deal with. ended up renting a puller for a few bucks and then got my money back when i returned it.

Got it off by drilling two holes and tapping two holes with m6 bolts I had from the crank pully and came off with some good force
