It will be a normal RH thread but TREMENDOUSLY tight, and maybe with Loctite as well. You should use a powerful rattle gun (impact wrench) to get it off.

Which direction do i turn the harmonic balancer bolt to remove it on a 1997 honda civic 1.6 liter


Hi:
The harmonic balancer bolt is a normal bolt with right hand threads, so you need to turn it counter-clockwise.
The hardest part of the process is to keep the crankshaft from turning. An impact wrench is the easiest way to go, but if you don't have one, you can use a large strap wrench or chain wrench to hold the harmonic pulley. I use a section of an old belt to protect the pulley.

Looking at the front of the engine, the harmonic balancer turns clockwise when running. You will need to turn the bolt anti clockwise as it is a normal right hand thread.

How do you remove the harmonic balancer on a 1987 GMC R3500 with a 454?


You remove the giant bolt, then you use a harmonic balancer puller, which essentially bolts up rather than using claws to grab. The bolts of the puller go into the pulley fastening bolt holes.

Something must happen to protect the crank threads, a spacer, using the retainer bolt, or whatever, just do not kill the threads.
