Oh I see. I have never had one of those bearings not come right off with a puller. I have the same suggestion: more heat.

I don't think you really read my first post. I used way more heat than you'd want to use on a crank that's going to ever see service again. Hell, it even started to melt the stamped metal ball retainer, and totally blued the snout of the crank. This crank is going to be used in an artistic effort, not a bike so I don't care, but when I go to pull the gear and bearing on my /5 to do the timing chain, that much heat won't be an option.

Oh, now I see a little better. I would cut and chisel it off. If that doesn't do it you are going to have to gring it off anyway.

So when pulling a duplex timing sprocket from the crank, what kind of puller is the best to use? Clymers shows a two jaw puller but I've found that the jaws on mine will bear more on the timing chain than on the sprocket itself. On the '78 the chain is masterless so it can't come off first.....any suggestions from the experts? Can I pull that sprocket with the jaws set against the chain? Or should I try to grind the jawas to fit better? Thoughts?

I have just used a dremel to cut my chain off.

I would prefer not to go through the hassle of taking off and replacing the socket as a complete set with camshaft chain and all.

I will use a split link duplex chain as a replacement they are cheap enough

I just pulled mine from a /6. Pulled the bearing then the sprocket, for no good reason. I don't have a pic of pulling the bearing, but the setup was identical to the one below. The arms were in contact with the outer bearing race. I did use oxy acetylene, but it didn't take much.

A stiff puller is a happy puller, and IMHO a two-jaw is superior to a three.

Cut the chain with bolt cutters, much less crap going everywhere than disc cutters. The side plates are very soft and cut easily. It seems very neanderthal, but it's a better process.
