Easiest way use an impact, otherwise jam the flywheel with a bar but be careful not to damage the ring gear

2007 mercury mainer 2.3 harmonic balancer bolt was loosened without the tool how do I reset it


There should be a key way on the crank that the balancer goes over or maybe it did not come off of the keyway and if not just take a socket and tighten the bolt in the end of the crank. Hold the drive shaft and tighten the bolt to torque.

I have an automatic transmission and need to replace harmonic balancer and can't get bolt off. Need help. I have puller but there are no threads to screw to keep puller in place. Any other methods


Use a large breaker bar and impact socket, and wedge against the ground or on the frame of vehicle, some place it won't kick out and turn the ignition key to tap starter (crank engine) quickly and starter will free bolt. Make sure that the breaker bar is on your right side looking at the bolt. Then use puller if needed to remove balancer.

How to change a harmonic balance


Hello....Well first of all...most of the time...To do this job...you 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 tool...in some cases a gear puller will work...or a tool called a harmonic balancer puller can be used..it has either 2 or 3 hooks to clamp onto the harmonic balancer and a bolt in the center that you tighten with a wrench..as you do,,,the balancer slowly inches forward until it is off the crankshaft...now 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 puller...you 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 yourself....an 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...

Broke the harmonic balancer bolt on my 1994 Dodge Intrepid, can the car drive with the bolt broken off about 1/2" deep? It seems snug.


the harmonic balancer is slightly pressed onto the crank shaft. It does require the bolt to hold it into its correct position. If you drive it with the bolt broken the pulley will eventually work its way loose from the crank shaft. This will cause damage to the crankshaft and will cause the accessory belts to come off as well.

Cant get harmonic balancer back on, do you really need a special tool oh its a 1991 chevy blazer 4.3liter


im not sure on this one but i have worked on pressed in balancers and slide on, the slide on have the key way and the press on dont, the balancer can go on anyway, theres no tool, clean the shaft with some emery cloth and the same for the balancer, then if its press on just slide on the crank or hold on the fornt of crank and use a hammer to get it on enough until the bolt can screw in a few turns, then you will use the bolt to drive it back on the crankshaft, an impact gun would do the job. if you dont have a gun then you will need to have someone hold the flywheel with a prybar, stick ythe prybar or big flat head screwdriver into a tooth on the flywheel and lock it form turnning and then tighten the crank bolt until the balancer is on. good day. also apply some permatex to bolt before threding it in to avoid oil leak. good day.

My mother had the oil changed in her 1992 Mercury Marquis, only 62,000 miles and the mechanic says we need to fix the crank pulley wobble? I have never heard of this, can you tell me what he is talking...


HI. This can be a potentially damaging find. The actual pulley may be separating from the crank shaft, itself.

Your crank pulley is bolted directly onto the harmonic balancer. The bolt that holds the balancer to the engine block may be loose, or the balancer, itself, may be separating. This condition could also destroy your crankshaft, if not repaired, asap. Hopefully your crank shaft is in good condition, and the culprit will turn out to be just a simple loose pulley bolt. The repair cost could catapult to a higher rate if it turns out to be a crank shaft fault.

Have this potentially damaging condition inspected, asap.

How do u change the timing belt on a 1990 4 cylinder honda accord?


Disconnect the wire harness at the distributor.Remove the spark plug closest to the drivers side front tire. Place the palm of your hand over the valve covers empty spark plug hole and have a helper crank the motor over until air pressure pushes past your the palm of your hand. Next, look at the cam shaft wheel and note the direction that the arrow is pointing, the arrow should be pointing straight up IN RELATION TO THE ENGINE not the earth. If it is not, you will need to manually rotate the engine till the cam wheel is infact pointing straight up. Next, Jack up the front of the car and support it with jack stand and remove the front drivers side tire.Next, support the weight of the engine with a floor jack remove the motor mount closest to the drivers side tire To remove it you will need a deep 17mm socket on a heavy duty breaker bar. Next, loosen and remove the power steering belt and alternator belts. To loosen and remove the belts you will need a 10mm wrench and a 12mm wrench. And also a 14mm or 15mm wrench. Next, use a 19mm socket AND an air powered IMPACT wrench to remove the bolt holding on the crank shaft pulley. Next, remove the crankshaft pulley. Next, use a 10mm wrench and/or 10mm socket and remove the bolts holding the plastic engine side cover. Next, loosen the 14mm or 15mm bolt which secures the 2 belt tension wheels. Next, LOOSEN the 10mm bolt that is on the balance shaft tensioner. The balance shaft is the cogged wheel with a small timing mark dot on the side of the wheel. Next, loosen the 10mm bolt on the timing belt tensioner. It's obvious what wheel is the timing belt tensioner. Next, remove the 12mm bolt on the back side of the block (near the balance shaft) a little bit of oil will drip out, this 12mm bolt will allow a long bolt to be inserted into a recessed channel of the balance shaft. This recessed channel is needed to lock the balance shaft in place. A bolt from the air conditioner works great for locking the balance shaft in place. You're basically just pushing the bolt in a hole to keep the balance shaft from spinning.890a27a.jpg Next, remove both the balance shaft belt and timing belt. Then reverse the procedure to complete the new belt installation. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!! PLEASE NOTE, the oil pump wheel furthest to the left (closest to the radiator), has a timing mark on the flat face side of the wheel, that timing mark has to be pointing directly to the 9:o'clock position in relation to the engine. The cam wheel has an arrow on the side of one of the "spokes" ...make sure it is pointing straight up in relation to the engine...straight away from the crank shaft. Put the crank wheel on with the arrow pointing straight up to the center of the cam wheel.

How hard should it be to get to the crank shaft


It isn't hard but you will need a three jaw puller to remove the balancer. Also you will need a impact gun and a 15/16 socket to remove the balancer bolt.
