97 2.5 Timing Sprocket Help

I am currently in the middle of replacing my timing chain and gears but I can't get the larger gear off to remove the chain. I have the nut off but is there something else holding it in place? I've looked everywhere and found nothing

The cam gear (the large one) is simply held on by the bolt and indexed with an alignment pin. It does slide over the end of the cam, and the fit is snug, but not snug like an interference fit. Try wobbling it back and forth while pulling outward on it.

Got them both off. Thanks for the help! It got dark and cold, so I'll finish with it Friday
