I just bought a 67 Corvette 427 engine. It is on a stand and the timing chain seemed a little loose, so I decided to change it. The lower pully is giving me a hard time removing it. The upper pully (which bolts on) was easy. I have even tried a gear puller (which of course broke some teeth on the old pully). I notice that there is a "key" on the shaft. Does this have to come out first? It looks like it does not, but.......
The new gear has a groove for the key.
Any advise, as allways is appreciated,

It will come off with a puller, but you need a pretty strong one. I use mine with an impact wrench to get them off. Big Blocks always seem tighter than Small Blocks for some reason. You might need a bigger puller.
