Does anyone have the dimensions for the VP44 gear puller? I want to make one for almost free rather than paying $40 + for one.

Most Auto parts stores (autozone,advance,O'reilly) will loan you the a puller,as far as i remember it's not anything special just a 4 finger gear puller.

are you replacing the vp44 or just needing the gear off? if replacing this is what i have used i just used a long punch. make sure you can get a new nut or got a new one but just screw the nut on bout half way make sure all mounting nuts and bolts are out and give it one good smack and it will pop right out.

i never tried smacking it. might work though. any small puller should work as long as it will fit in the opening in the timing cover. take off the crankcase breather and you can see the gear

Do you need the bolt size? Or the space from bolt to bolt?

I have some info for you just dont know what you are looking for.

Just did mine yesterday.

The puller to the left has a shorter shaft and fits better in the engine compartment.

Both of these pullers will work.

I will be replacing it. I found one on line by blue point that was round. Does anyone have one of those? I can't find the dimensions for it. The puller fits inside the timing cover right? I can just take the breather out and measure.

Guess i'm at a loss of how to help you, you've been given a couple options, the one 4 finger puller shown above will work fine and you can borrow it from a parts store.

I might have mislead you about the puller fitting in the opening at the breather cover. It does not have to fit inside the opening. but you can see the gear thru the opening. any puller you can get in front of the gear will work. Mine came off very easisly. Just be careful with the key in the shaft, if it falls out into the gear case it will make the job much more difficult

thanks everyone for the info. I watched a video on how to replace the VP44 and they used the round puller so I thought thats what was needed. Looks pretty easy now that I understand. I'm sure I have a puller that will work.
