i would be

leery of trying the chisel behind the sprocket. the block appears to be aluminum. you could damage it i think. the sprocket is too tight to get the fingers of a puller in there?

the center of the sprocket seems to be a softer material to alleviate vibrations. so it sounds like you are will ing to destroy the sprocket. if you do that maybe there will be room at the back of the center piece of steel at the base of the sprocket. can you find a cross section of the sprocket?? to see if this might be true? i think it prob is not true. but might be worth checking into. what does the repair manual say?
