check to make sure the woodruff key is set well in there too when you pull the gear off. You'll want to replace it (and probably the crank) if it wiggles at all. It looks good in the picture, but pictures can lie.

As I was attempting to pry off the sprocket I heard something fall and hit the ground...

to get cogs off in the past, it has helped me to tap the perimeter of the gear with a hammer LIGHTLY!! in order to dislodge any rust holding it in place. Those things are always bitches though.

Nicacus...

Just noticed you're in West Valley. If you still haven't got this sorted by Saturday I'd be happy to give you a hand. PM me if you need anything.

Changing the timing belt fixed it.
I would have had it done on friday but, the retard at the dealer put my order in late so i had to wait until monday to get the parts.

Total cost was about $240
Changed the tensioner pulley, idler pulley, tension spring, crankshaft sprocket, and woodruff key.

Not nearly as difficult as I thought it was going to be.

behold the array of shiny new parts!
