Question about Cars & Trucks
Our balancer came apart, is it left handed thread or right? any tips for removal?
Loose the same direction the motor turns
Long Breaker bar or ratchet
May need an Air Impact Gun & even heat the bolt

i just replaced mine and it loosen to the left...so you will need a impact and atleast 1/2" drive and 140 to 180 psi to break it free

THE thread is a std Left hand to undo But you will need a 3/4 drive100 lbs air rattle gun to both undo and redo up the bolt on front pully.. BUT there is another way and that is as you say a big breaker bar and a good socket, but you will have to take off the starter motor and put a good fitting bar into the starter ring teeth and turn it to the top and dont let it slip out of the teeth and once locked into place gently put pressure on and undo the bolt..
But its unusual for the seal to leak on its own as its mostly due to either the front pully has worn a grove in it or the crankshaft bearing is also worn, so check the front pully for wear first. Ron
