1984 Fiero 2m4 manual trans

Well it finally happened. At 125k I sheared my timing gear. I've been reading up and it sounds like a huge pain to get it done. I've been working on cars my whole life but I don't have a garage, just a cement pad and this would end up being a multi weekend project.

I wanted to look around and see if anybody has a mechanic in the Detroit metro area they would recommend for the job. Hoping to find someone who has already done a timing gear on an iron Duke.

You might try "olejoedad", send a pm. He is just west of Jackson, if you don't mind trailering or a home service call. Sorry about not having a local contact.

Thanks for the info. Today i picked it up on jack stands and took a look. It almost looks like if i lowered the engine cradle i could use a puller to get the crank pulley off, and then get to the timing cover no problem. The only problem i can forsee is removing the camshaft to have the new gear pressed on. Bouncing back and fourth between doing it myself, and paying someone to do it.
