Assuming that you already removed everything in front of the gear, the first thing you are going to do is make sure that the timing marks are align with each other

4.9L engine timing gear mark alignmentFig. 2: Removing the camshaft gear from the 4.9L engine

Fig. 3: Removing the crankshaft gear from the 4.9L engine

If you notice there are two different pullers that you will need. Any other way you will damage the gears. Most car care store can loan these out. If the gears seem to be stuck lightlytap the back of the puller after applying some tension on the nut this should do the trick
