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.

SOURCE: How do I remove the harmonic balancer on a 1992

You will need to get a puller. They can be bought at most autoparts stores, some will even rent them. Just be sure that you tell them it's for a harmonic balancer. Attach it to the balancer with the included bolts and tighten it up. When it gets tight give the tightening bolt a sharp rap with a hammer and tighten some more. Continue until the balancer comes off. Hope this helps.

Need to replace the harmonic balancer in a 1994 isuzu rodeo. ( rwd, 3.2 ltr v.6 ). no success so far. is the main bolt reverse threaded? so far i have been attempting to turn it toward the passenger side,...

No, the bolt is not left handed. You do need to turn it counter-clockwise to loosen it. You're probably just spinning the engine when trying to loosen it. I use a 6" c-clamp and attach it behind the balancer in a way that the threaded shaft can lodge up against something so the engine can't turn. Then I use a 3 lb rubber mallet and hit the 1/2" drive rachet on the handle, or put a breaker bar on the end of it and work it loose that way. Once you get the bolt off, you will need to use a pulley puller to get the balancer off.

Im tring to find instructions on how to install a harmonic balancer for a 01 chevy impala

If you have a manual, likely you are looking in the wrong place...that would be listed as part of any timing chain removal, front seal removal etc.
Balancer is removed by taking off any pulleys attached to it, removing the center bolt, then using a harmonic balancer puller (specific tool).
To put it back on, just put the new one on the crank snout, put back in the center bolt and washer and tighten it up. (anything that is in your way and preventing you from getting in there needs to be removed as well)

Removing harmonic balancer & replacing crankshaft sensor

The bolt is right hand thread. I do believe it is adjustable. But you can readjust it if needed after the balance is installed from the bottom.
