The crank sprocket should be a LIGHT tap fit and can be installed without any special tools. It should actually slip over the crankshaft and start over the woodruff key before any pressure is required to complete the installation.Tap lightly going around or alternating sides of the sprocket staying close to the crankshaft and away from the sprocket teeth. A pipe that can be slipped over the crankshaft with minimal clearance can also be used to apply the "tapping" force more evenly. Be sure that the sprocket is fully seated (bottomed out) against the shoulder of the crankshaft.
