You need a "gear puller".
This is the harmonic balance, right?
If so, then you need a "harmonic balancer puller" for a Ford.

You may be able to rent (or maybe free) one from an auto parts store like AutoZone. Look for posted signs regarding tools & lending. Generally, you leave a $$ deposit.

This is a serious step ... as explained in my earlier post.
May I ask (add a comment) ... what is your goal .. what are you trying to do? I mean after you pull the balancer?

Thanks!

Removing harmonic balancer


First, you have to loosen the crank pulley center bolt. Best way is with an impact gun-bolt is very tight. If you have to use a breaker bar to loosen the bolt, you will have to devise a way to hold the crankshaft from turning backward while loosening it. One method is to remove the starter and wedge a piece of wood against the flywheel, preventing it from turning, while you are loosening the center bolt.
From the beginning: raise and block the side of car that the front of engine is towards. Remove the wheel and the inner fender splash shield. Remove the belts. Remove negative battery terminal, remove starter. Wedge the flywheel so it won't turn backward. Loosen and remove the center bolt. Some harmonic balancers will slide right off the crankshaft now, some are on very tight, if you can't wiggle it, tap it, and get it to move, then buy an inexpensive harmonic balancer removal puller, just a few bucks, easy to use, will save balancer from trying to hammer it off. All you need is enough room to mount up the puller to the balancer, and get the balancer moving off the crank.
Some engine lay outs there isn't enough room: then you really have to get creative, either lowering engine enough to get to pulley, or raising engine out. But most engines are positioned where the crank pulley can come off easily, with enough room to get the puller on.
The pulley may have a woodruff key in a slot on the crankshaft, and a corresponding notch on the pulley, for proper positioning of the pulley to crank. Don't lose the woodruff key.

How to change crankshaft sensor on 1999 grand price gt


To get to the sensor, the harmonic balancer pulley on the crankshaft has to be removed. The center bolt on the harmonic balancer is on very tight. To loosen without an impact wrench, remove starter motor and wedge a piece of wood against the flywheel, or use a pry bar and hold the ring gear on the flywheel rigid, while loosening the crank bolt. The engine will try to turn backward when you loosen the crank bolt, so you have to hold the flywheel rigid. Once the bolt is removed, see if you can get the harmonic balancer pulley off without a gear puller. Just try tapping it to see if it slides off, or use two screwdrivers on each side behind the pulley and see if you can start it sliding off. If it is on very tight, as many are, you will have to get hold of a harmonic balancer removal tool-a simple, inexpensive puller that bolts onto pulley and can be drawn off. You might be able to rent the tool too.
BTW, you will need to have the wheel removed from passenger side, and the inner fender cover removed to get to the crankshaft. Once the pulley is off you can unbolt the sensor and put the new one on. GM recommends using a sensor alignment tool to install, because the thin vanes on the back of the harmonic balancer pass through the sensor, and if not aligned right could damage one or the other. If you don't have the tool, put the sensor on loosely mounted, just snugged up finger tight, then test the pulley will slide through the sensor slots without touching either side of sensor. If it looks right, tighten down the sensor in place, install the harmonic balancer pulley and tighten the center crank bolt to about 105 foot pounds.
Wedge the flywheel again so the engine won't turn when tightening the crankshaft bolt.
Good luck, and hope you get it.

My crankshaft pulley doesnt spin


if the engine runs. you have either sheared the keystock the pulley slides onto. or the center bolt is missing and has let it slide out off of the key. or you have broken the end of the crank off. good luck.

I need to know how to change the serpentine belt on a 1994 chevy cavalier


    • 1 Open the hood, and locate the auto-tensioning bolt in the center of the pulley system. This bolt will be in the center of a pulley that does not appear to be connected to any component.
    • 2 Turn the auto-tensioning bolt clockwise with a socket wrench to release tension on the belt.
    • 3 Slide the belt off the pulley system.
    • 4 Orient the new belt on the pulley system according to the belt path printed on the underside of the hood and next to the hood latch mechanism on your Cavalier. Leave slack in the belt around the tensioner pulley.
    • 5 Slide the belt over the tensioner pulley while you have the auto-tensioner pulley bolt turned clockwise as far as it will go. Make sure that the belt is sitting centered in all the various pulley grooves on the pulley system.
    • 6 Release the tension pulley bolt, and apply tension to the belt. The auto-tensioner will automatically apply the correct amount of tension on the belt.

How do I remove crankShaft pulley


Remove the center bolt and then pull out, it slides of the crankshaft, sometimes a little tapping and prying is needed to remove, take note. honda tightens there crank bolts over 140 ft lbs, theres a tool to hold the crank from moving, this tool goes in the center of the pulley then a socket goes in the middle of that to the crank bolt to loosen, a powerful impact gun is needed or a big long 1/2 inch drive rachet is used to break bolt free.good luck and have a good day.

HOW YOU TAKE THE KRANCK PULLY FOR 2006 PT C


you'll need a three jaw puller and a long bolt that is one size smaller than the crank pulley bolt. The bolt will need to seat in the end of the hole for the crank pulley bolt and still be long enough to allow the crank pulley to be removed.

The three jaw pulley can then be installed so that it locks onto the three tabs in the center of the pulley. The center of the three jaw will then push on the bolt head and pull the pulley off.

OTC make a tool just for this, but a three jaw and a long bolt will do the job.
