I will triple it!!

Remove the distributors and then I just use a vise to squish off the  
old rotor. I would not hit the shaft with a hammer because you can  
easily damage it.
Also, be very careful with the cam drive flange. One of them is made  
of some fiber type stuff and breaks easily.
You will also make your life a little easier if you set the motor to  
TDC so you have timing marks for reassembly.
