You may need an impact gun. If loctite was used, you will need a gun.

    No, you should have no worry about breaking the bolt. Just be careful swinging a hammer in tight quarters. Don't want to get hurt. Good luck

How do i remove the old harmonic balancer on a 1994 honda accord lx

First, look at the direction the balancer turns. Remove the belts. Put the proper sized socket on the balancer bolt and, install a breaker bar into the socket. Make sure the bar is at the side of the engine compartment, where the top of the balancer rotates toward. Next, BUMP THE KEY but DO NOT crank the engine. When the bar contacts the wall or other object, it will stop, allowing the engine to continue and break the bolt loose.

Honda accord ex 92

Crankshaft pulley (harmonic balancer) removal- disconnect neg battery cable, remove belts, it would be a good idea to soak the bolt w/ penetrating oil overnight, there is a special 'crankshaft pulley holding tool' available to secure the pulley while removing and installing the bolt. Some parts stores loan tools for free if u purchase parts from them, I don't know if this is available, but it would be worth checking out. Attach holding tool and remove bolt securing pulley. Carefully remove pulley from crankshaft, Do NOT pry off. Remove key from crankshaft sprocket,
Install: install key on crankshaft sprocket, slide pulley on, apply clean oil to bolt threads but NOT to washer contact surfaces, secure crankshaft w/ holding tool, tighten to 159 ft lbs (91-93 Accord), install belts, re-attach neg cable.

Remove the bolt in the crankshaft then use a puller to remove the rest of the balancer. Sometimes they come off without a puller.
