Normally they are held on with a big bolt or pressed on
some real trucks have a nut and a taper sleeve that has to be pulled out first before the balancer will come off
basic small vehicle stuff --undo the bolt and use a harmonic balancer puller to get it off
Take care if there is a crank position sensor behind the pulley or hub
Best get a workshop manual for your vehicle ( you forgot to mention what it is) and read up on how to do the job.

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.

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.

Oil leak


It is possible on these engines. If the seal becomes hardened, it can begin to wear into the harmonic balancer. It is best to replace the seal and they also sell a kit that sleeves the harmonic balancer and helps to seal any leaks. let me know if any instructions are needed.
