Help on Puller to use for '76 Prestolite Distributor Trigger Wheel

Hi, I'm having trouble finding a puller that will fit to pull the trigger wheel on a '76 Prestolite distributor.

Can anyone recommend a brand a part # that will work?

My CJ-5 is mostly all original so I want to get things working before deciding on upgrades. I have a NOS replacement SMP pick-up to install, which is why I need to pull the trigger wheel.

Thanks for help

It's not much help but the factory service manual only says to use a small gear puller.

Here's a link:

and a gauge to re-install the wheel and sensor.

Maybe you can take the distributor up to Autozone and ask to borrow a puller and see if it fits.
