I have a '94 Tempo, it had a "ticking" sound. It was the "harmonic balancer" (crankshaft pulley) a local mechanic changed it for $60, the part cost me $120 (I work for a Ford dealership) $180 without employee discount. you can get one for much less at a junkyard if you can find one. Good luck, Sean

SOURCE: replacing the harmonic balancer in ford bronco

First remove radiator fan shrould.This will give you access to the fan.Remove fan and fan belts.Remove bolt on harmonic balancer.You will need to rent a balancer remover and installer kit.Most big auto parts chains will rent these kits to you.Next remove four bolts holding pulley to balancer.Next attach balancer puller to balancer with long bolts from kit.Using a 1\2 drive breaker bar,remove balancer from engine.After removing balancer replace front seal.Lubricate hub on new balancer with engine oil.Then use installation tool from kit to install balancer.Never try to beat balancer on with hammer,engine damage could occur.Then work in reverse to replace remaining parts.Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: how do i remove the

If there is no air-compressor and an impact gun to remove the harmonic balancer bolt, then there are two other ways to remove it. Either remove the inspection cover at the bell-housing and use a large flat head screwdriver to wedge between the flex-plate drive gear teeth and the engine block so that the engine is locked-up, and then remove the harmonic balancer bolt with a long breaker bar and a lot of muscle power, or for the more advanced mechanics and only they should attempt this, place a long breaker bar on the harmonic balancer bolt and then brace the breaker bar up against the frame of the vehicle so that when the engine turns over the breaker bar will stop on the vehicle frame, and keep in mind that the crankshaft will turn clockwise or to the right, and when you are looking for some place to brace the breaker bar be sure that nothing else will get in the way or it will be damaged. Be sure that the breaker bar is on the harmonic balancer bolt properly, and place the breaker bar about 1 to 2 inches from the vehicle frame so that when the engine turns the breaker bar will lock up against the vehicle frame, and while holding the breaker bar in place have someone turn the ignition key and give the starter a bump, and be very sure to keep your hand away from where the breaker bar is going to contact the vehicle frame, or your fingers will get smashed by the breaker bar when it turns into the frame so do not attempt this if you are unfamiliar with using hand tools, and the starter should break the harmonic balancer bolt loose easily, so be very sure that your hands are out of the way of getting hurt when the starter motor is used to break the harmonic balancer bolt loose.

How do I get the harmonic balancer off of my 2006 Ford Mustang

you will need a "Puller" to remove the "Balancer and there should be a bolt in the middle of the Balancer that holds it on to the crankshaft. You will also have to replace the seal that runs on the Balancer.
Before you do all that you will have to remove the fan shroud and whatever else needs to be removed to gain access to the Balancer and remove it.

How do I take off the harmonic balancer on a 4.0 liter engine

You will have to take the belt off and then take the bolt out of the center that holds it onto the crankshaft. then You need a "harmonic balancer" puller, It has slots that bolt to the inner part of the balancer and you screw in the big center bolt. As you tighten the bolt it "pulls" the balancer. Here is a picture;
