350 double roller timing chain help.....

I have a 1997 Vortec 350 block and I'm in the process of replacing the original timing chain with a double roller. I removed the original crank gear O.K......but how do I hammer the new gear on without destroying the thrust bearing?.

take a harmonic balancer installer or something of the same design then push the gear on using a spacer(s).

It should slip over the snout,and tap it on with a deadblow.Unless the Vortec crank is differnet and uses something other than a traditional crank and keyway.Work your way around the sprocket in circles until it seats. You should not have to blast it to get it on. I would wait though and see what someone else says,I have not worked on the Vortech,but I think it would be the same.

use some grease too. I have used a 2x4 upon occassion with a 3 lb hammer smacking the 2x4. Heavy swings not needed. Tap and move, tap and move.
