Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
No. The balancer can be pulled off from the crank with no problem. It's the main pulley on the engine. It has a big bolt at the center that holds the pulley onto the crank, that bolt needs to come off. Then the pulley (harmonic balancer) can come off.

Haven't laid eyes on one of those for a really long time!!! If you can't get info. you can do it the really "non technical way": stand next to it and eyeball the pulleys...Especially with the belts on, it's easy to tell if you have them aligned properly (don't have to tighten them up, just enough so they are in straight lines.) You would be surprised at how accurate your eyes are!!!

Testimonial: "Thanks for your answer. 159ft-lbs seems a bit high. I only say this because 1990 Honda Integra 1.8L is 130ft-lbs. Maybe because of bigger engine."
THE thread is a std Left hand to undo But you will need a 3/4 drive100 lbs air rattle gun to both undo and redo up the bolt on front pully.. BUT there is another way and that is as you say a big breaker bar and a good socket, but you will have to take off the starter motor and put a good fitting bar into the starter ring teeth and turn it to the top and dont let it slip out of the teeth and once locked into place gently put pressure on and undo the bolt..
But its unusual for the seal to leak on its own as its mostly due to either the front pully has worn a grove in it or the crankshaft bearing is also worn, so check the front pully for wear first. Ron
