Timing belt

How the heck do you take it off crank? When I attempt to pull the sprocket off the crank it just bends the sheave. And I can only get 2 of the 3 jaws of the puller on. Is there a better way?

I'll get a picture of it tonight. I wont be able to explain it very well.

BUT from what I can tell, I will destroy the lower timing belt sprocket trying to remove it from the end of the crank. I can only get 2 of the 3 puller jaws on the sprocket (which have basically sheet metal guards/guides on either side, that's I'll that I can grab on) and all that does is bend the sheet metal.

I wouldn't even have to remove the sprocket but there is some cast piece that is bolted to the front of the motor that covers the bottom 180 degrees of the entire face width of the sprocket and there is no room to get the belt off

it's similar to what's going on in figure 5. I finally got the front sprocket cover off, the old belt off and the new one on. It was secured to the sprocket with pressed in thingamijig, I damaged it just a little but nothing I can't fix.
