    Steel gear and the steel spindle have the same thermal expansion rate. But it will do no harm to try. No torch though....

    Then get a large bearing splitter that will fit behind the gear.

    Should not have to force them in - I saw sobel do that in a 10L. Maybe there's a pin lurking in there somewhere on a 14?

    My other go-to on this would be a bearing splitter to mount the puller on.

    Given the 8 on that is about 5/8 inch diameter, the tolerance required would be +/- 1/8 inch or so.

    So the 0.0005 TIR number is purely nonsense.
