I did mine this weekend and all went well.  The three hardest parts were
removing the anti-tamper cover, removing the nut to remove the clamp and
pressing out the pin on the old gear.
1.  Long screw driver and mallet to bend/tear it off the cover.
2.  I Used an inspection mirror and a 13mm crows foot wrench to remove
the clamp hardware,
3. I needed an arbor press to remove the old pin and plastic gear plus a
lot of force.  Also the new metal gear had a tight slip fit, so I
pressed it on the shaft.  Everything fit and worked great.  Thanks DP

It took me about 2.5 - 3 hours of work.
