I jerryrigged a spanner wrench to fit the two holes for leverage so I could fit the socket damper bolt. When I removed the socket the damper slipped right off without any puller.

02 dodge 4.7 installining harmolic balancer

Harmonic balancer...
(vibration damper specifically MATCHED to your engine).

A specially designed puller should ALWAYS be used to remove (otherwise the UNIT will be damaged).

Never ever exert ANY force on the outside edge (separate piece).

It is keyed to the crankshaft (main-shaft)... you really CAN-NOT go wrong here... make sure all your mating surfaces are clean.

(seriously consider your opportunity to renew your front seal)

If your engine is cold & the Harmonic Balancer is warm (NOT HOT)
it will HELP to get it FURTHER onto the CRANKSHAFT before using its own MOUNTING BOLT to PULL IT all the way HOME.

Never exert ANY force on the outside edge (and you will go far).

Good luck

Here's another question. While using the puller on the damper, how do you keep the crankshaft from turning the engine???

Stick a long screwdriver or punch between the bolts on the gear puller and use to hold as you tighten the puller bolt..

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;

How to replace the harmonic balancer

This usually requires a special tool to pull the balancer off, but the last one I took off slipped off by hand. What you have to do is first is loosen the nut. It takes a large socket. 19mm or bigger. You may need to take the plastic skirt off the fender well to get access. Next, you will need some way to lock the engine from turning. If you have a manual trans, put it in a high gear and set the parking brake. If you have an automatic, look for something near the pulley that you can poke a good size screwdriver into that will pry against the engine. If nother like that is available, the last resort is to remove and jam the flexplate gear with a vice grip.
Once you have the bolt loose, take all the belts off. Then see if you can pull the damper off by hand. If not, use a 3-jaw puller or borrow/rent a damper puller. Autozone loans pullers for a refundable deposit.

To replace, reverse procedure, voila.

What is the trick to removing the harmonic balancer on a stratus

Theres no trick. It has to be cocked or something from all the pulling. Try tapping it back on, use spraylube on the crank and try again. Good luck.
