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.

If necessary, use a prying tool to wedge between the engine block and damper spoke hole, then loosen the center bolt.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the right side wheel and tire assembly.
  2. Remove the right inner splash shield.
  3. Remove the accessory drive belts.
  4. Break the crankshaft damper bolt loose, but do not remove it.
  5. To remove the crankshaft damper. If necessary, attach a suitable 3-jawed puller to the crankshaft damper, then tighten the center bolt and remove the damper bolt and damper.
If you broke the inside area, then you need to grab the outside area (if needed after the previous procedure was followed.

I'm trying to remove a harmonic balancer. I've got to the point of taking it off. The pulley remover is placed. But the bolt when completely down only turns the balancer. How to fix please


Are you using a gear puller or an actual harmonic bal. puller? You can use air tools(carefully), or to hold the balancer/pulley still, use a chain wrench with an old belt wrapped around to prevent damage. I would not recommend a 2 or 3 jaw type gear puller.

I just ask the question about tools to change the harmonic balancer the vehicle is a '92 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 6 cylinder with a 3.3 motor.


This vehicle will require a special puller to remove the balancer once the crankbolt is removed. This bolt is usually 21mm or 22mm in socket size if I remember. You will have to remove the wheel and inner splash sheild to access the bolt. The puller can usually be rented from most auto supply stores for a small fee.

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.

Need to pull the harmonic balancer. Do i need a puller 1992 cutlas ciera c with 3300 v6.


Yes. You always need a puller for the harmonic balancer. Never try to remove it without a puller. You may be able to rent one at the auto parts store or borrow one from a friend. Hope this helps.

How do you replace the harmonic balancer pulley on the 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


The short answer to your question is:

1. Raise the car on the passenger side and remove the front wheel.
2. Remove the belts on the harmonic balancer.
3. Remove the retaining bolt.
4. With a puller, jack the harmonic balancer off of the crank shaft. You can rent a puller at your local auto parts store. It is easiest to access the harmonic balancer through the fender, hence the need to remove the wheel.
5. You should also consider replacing the seal around the harmonic balancer to minimize the possibility of a leak later.
6. Install the new harmonic balancer and tighten the retaining bolt to the specified torque (I don't know this off the top of my head).
7. Replace the belts and wheel, and voila...mission accomplished.

This was a short answer to your question. You may wish to consult a repair manual for illustrations, torque specifications, additional instructions, etc. This job is not for the faint of heart. Good luck!

How do i replace the harmonic balancer on a 95 royale 88


Remove all belts and rad, use a pully puller to remove the belt pully, and then you need a special puller to pull the harmonic balancer.
