    well I found out that you can but man is it tight. The puller was the most difficult but we made it work.

SOURCE: Remove the harmonic balancer without a puller?

You can try simply wiggling the balancer and see if you get lucky. A few taps with a rubber mallet may convince it to come free. Worst case get the kit. You should not need to remove the radiator. Do make sure that you have the engine blocked so you don't lose your timing mark placement.

Yes a harmanic balancer from tha corolla is the same thing. I had to do the same thing with my 95 geo. It works out to be a lot cheaper buying for a toyota than a geo.

I have a 1995 mazda miata that needed a new harmonic balancer, new battery, and oil. It was working fine until I was coming home from work ( after putting 10W-40 and 10W-30 motor oil in it) and had noticed...

Any Noises and/or Stalling or Misfire(s) ?
Will Engine Crank ? If so does it Crank Fast or Slow and/or Really Slow like rrrruh....rru...rrru..rrururu .
POSSIBILITY - ALTERNATOR BAD or going BAD it' not generating power to keep the battery charged therefore causing all Electronics to slowly fail as the battery loses all life ?
Need more Info and Why was a HARMONIC BALANCER needed? The obvious of course it was bad , But you are driving a MAZDA and a harmonic balancer isn't just a harmonic balancer it has to be the EXACT HARMONIC BALANCER , they can look identical and still be different . What was the REASONING for the replacement?NOT A COMMON PROBLEM.

Hamonic balance

Do you mean harmonic balancer? If so, a Harmonic balancer absorbs engine vibration and basically keeps your crankshaft from failing over a period of time. A harmonic balancer is a very important part of your engine and should be maintained accordingly.

My 1991 mazda navajo 4x4 vibrates at mid to high speeds and leaks trany fluid from transfer case and transmission

Something is obviously out of balance. I am going out on a limb and guessing this.

and the faster you go, vibration is always more noticeable.

How do you change the Harmonic balancer on 1994 Toyota tercel

just the harmonic balancer the bolt is tensioned to 112 ft/lb so get a1/2 " impact wrench as that will undo the bolt without the need to hold the crankshaft
may need a harmonic balancer puller but with that tension
the pulley should slip of the shaft with a bit of effort
to get space to run the impact gun , you may have to remove the radiator

1998 grand cherokee limited crankshaft crack?

To identify the crankshaft, with the belt removed, it is the only item that will turn when you crank the engine over.
I've seen harmonic balancers fail but rarely a crankshaft.
Some P/S systems will "push" some fluid out when you steer without the pump running. Concentrate on repairing/replacing the balancer, then re-diagnose the P/S problem after that is taken care of.

Alternator not charging the battery.. Do you know where the alter

You own a mini van. These creations were designed by engineers to drive mechanics crazy! :-( Everything is designed with little or no access. The alternator on your van is made of aluminum (so it's silver). It is located near the crankshaft harmonic balancer. If you look at the harmonic balancer, the alternator will be at the 10 o'clock position. It is on the passenger side of the engine, behind the engine block. One of the fan belts goes to it. The pulley on the alternator has a belt on it. Follow the fan belt which goes towards the rear of the engine.
PS You may have to get under the van to remove it.
