The manual says to press it off,which involves removing the cam (Aghhh)///..can you whittle it down to just the metal collar,and split it with a chisel?..I've done that on some engines

that is about the only option left now. only problem is I can't remove the fan. large nut is siezed to the water pump, & would have to replace the whole unit, which I could do. am doing this for a friend, it's his work truck, & has limited funds, but you gotta do what you gotta do!!!
Thanks, stormy[:@]
