Question about 1994 Volvo 850
How do you take off a non threaded harmonic balancer on a 94 volvo 850 non turbo 5 cylinder, i have the HB removal kit but that only works on threaded HB. heres a pic of the HB
its not the exact one, mine is flat, those four holes are over threads in the block and are not threaded a pry bar will only wedge the whole thing sideways and since the block is still in the car i cant use two pry bars
please help,i spent $3,000 dollars on parts to partially rebuild (head up) i cant get the timing belt completely off unless i get the HB off, and i dont want to use the old one. i need to get it done before monday 4:00pm
Well It has a bolt and a wood-ruff key holding it in place. I am sure you took the center bolt out,so with the pry bar on one side with mild pressure tap on the opposite side of the balancer with a small hammer. Remembering this is not a press fit.So by synchronizing the pressure with the tap it should move tiny bits at a time. It is kind of a "feel" thing. Not a "force " thing.
I actually wish I were there to help.This kind of removal is kind of tricky but it does work. Tiny movements at a time.
Best Luck to you.
