Yes Auto zone have loaner crankshaft pulley extractor
better know as harmonic valancer puller.
you pay a deposit and when you bring it back the refund your money
do not use a bicycle chain like tool because that will damage your pulley. unless you are planing to install a brand new one.
there is a rubber ring in between the outer and inner part of the pulley than can be real easily damage.
you can temporary float one cylinder whit gasoline and cap it of whit the spark plug that will lock the engine temporarily when you have to turn the crankshaft bolt.
when you are done just remove the spark plug and turn the crankshaft to drain out the gasoline and unlock the engine.

You use a chain that is actually a vice grip. It has what looks like a bicycle chain that loops around the pulley. then locks it in place like a vice grip. I think autozone rents this. You can also use a vice grip to keep it from turning but that would bend the groove in, then you have to beat it back to shape later.

How do I remove crankshaft pully from kia optima 2005 2.7 liter v6 24 val dohc ?

Remove all the belts on the pulley. Remove the center retaining bolt which typically needs to keep the engine from turning to get it off unless you use an impact wrench. Then you need a puller to push against the end of the crank shaft and pull the pulley off.

I need to remove my front seal ( crankshaft) possibly without any fancy tools?

Pulling and replacing a main seal on a crank cannot be done without "fancy" tools. If you go to and make a free account and then put in the make and model and year, you will be able to access the free online repair guides. Also if there is an autoparts chain near you, you can rent those fancy tools.

How to change a harmonic balance

Hello....Well first of all...most of the time...To do this will need special tools...There is a center bolt that connects the balancer to the crank shaft...It's driven in really tight so most likely..a pneumatic wrench or a good breaker bar will need to be used to remove it...once you remove the center bolt...there is a tool called a puller that is used to walk the balancer off the crank shaft...You can either rent or buy this some cases a gear puller will work...or a tool called a harmonic balancer puller can be has either 2 or 3 hooks to clamp onto the harmonic balancer and a bolt in the center that you tighten with a you do,,,the balancer slowly inches forward until it is off the to get the new balancer on..there is a tool called a Press which is a bolt that is specially designed to do the opposite of the place the new balancer on the crankshaft..install the press as you would the center bolt...and tighten it with a wrench and it will slowly walk the balancer onto the crank shaft...Then you remove the press and install the center bolt..preferrably with a torque wrench...Now...after reading all this...are you sure you want to do this honest mecanic will most likely do this job for $150 bucks....Parts and labor....If you do this yourself..let me know how it goes....I hope this was helpful....PEACE...

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.

How do you remove the crankshaft pully on a 2002 optima the engine is still in car

If the front of the crankshaft pulley is accessible and you have removed all accessory belts you can remove the bolt on front of pulley with a pneumatic or electric torque wrench. It is very difficult with hand tools. I would not recommend.

Do i need a special tool to take the harmonic balancer off

not really special, but, you need a harmonic balancer pulley removing tool...Lots of larger parts store either loan them out or rent them. (if you buy one you may get to use it again in five years,unless you are a tech.) Why are you taking it off?

Need to get unmoveable crank pulley holding bolt out, '97 subie

Some use a three prong puller. Not very hard to use and you can rent them at auto zone or advance. If an impact wrench isn't getting it off you might wanna try a good size socket wrench with an impact socket. then use a large pipe and a hammer. hit it firmly a few times then try to turn then hammer again then turn again until it breaks loose.

Harmonic balancer

You can use a strap wrench and an impact wrench; both are usually rentable from an auto parts store. A puller can usually be rented also.
