Help. I am halfway through a dizzy rebuild on a 1991 2.6L trooper. I can't get the T-sleeve to lift off the shaft. Should I get a super small pulley puller or try a heat gun and freeze spray the shaft? It is in the mid 30's in my garage. I got the crank angle sensor trouble code, and I found oil inside my dizy.

Well I brought the dizy inside the house and left it near a heating vent. The next day the T-sleeve slid right off. It seems there was some old oil locking it in place at those cold temps. The bearing looks good and i ordered a new inner seal from Red's Auto Rehab for $7 here: http://redsautorehab.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=69
I hope this info helps. It took me awhile to track down the parts. NAPA has a kit for the O-ring and seal for close to $25. So I will wait for the parts to ship from Red's.
