Re: need to replace the harmonic balancer
You will need a puller designed for that job. Remove whatever is in the way to gain access, remove any pulleys bolted onto balancer, remove center retaining nut, install puller and remove balancer. Replace in reverse order. Note it's good to use an impact gun on center bolt when removing or replacing or crank may turn and prevent you from getting it loose. I have a way but it's dangerous so I won't recommend. Obviously, remove drive belt before beginning.
