I'm trying to remove a harmonic balancer. I've got to the point of taking it off. The pulley remover is placed. But the bolt when completely down only turns the balancer. How to fix please


Are you using a gear puller or an actual harmonic bal. puller? You can use air tools(carefully), or to hold the balancer/pulley still, use a chain wrench with an old belt wrapped around to prevent damage. I would not recommend a 2 or 3 jaw type gear puller.

Cant get my harmonic balancer off my 93 honda civic lx 1.5 liter


You need a harmonic balancer tool to remove this item. It is held on by a lock key. You can also very gently try and use a pry bar of some sort and slowly moving around in a circle pattern get it to come off.

How do i remove harmonic balancer & replace


YOU NEED A HARMONIC BALANCER PULLER TOOL AND A 15M SIX POINT SOCKET TO REMOVE HARMONIC BALANCER BOLT.TURN OFF RADIO AND REMOVE THE DRIVE BELT AND REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE. REMOVE THE STARTER SO YOU CAN PUT A LARGE SCREW DRIVER OR LARGE PUNCH TO STICK IN ONE OF THE FLY WHEEL HOLES TO KEEP ENGINE FROM TURNING WHEN YOU LOOSEN THE HARMONIC BALANCE BOLT. ALSO SCREW DRIVER AND PUNCH CAN KEEP ENGINE FROM TURNING WHEN REMOVER THE HARMONIC BALANCER. YOU WILL NEED A HELPER TO HOLD PUNCH OR SCREW DRIVER WHILE YOU LOOSEN THE BOLT. YOU CAN GO TO SEARS OR ANY AUTO PARTS STORE AND BUY HARMONIC BALANCER PULLER.TORQUE HARMONIC BALANCER BOLT TO 76 FT LBS.

Ok got the retaining bolt off of harmonic balancer by using a breaking bar now using a 3 prong gear puller to remove balancer but it just dont want to budge.any suggestions


you may have the wrong puller to do the job. suggest you try an advance auto parts store and rent the right puller for the repair,all your money to rent the right tool will be refunded after the tools returned. the harmonic balancer should be removed easily with the right removal tool and a small ammount of wd40 sprayed onto the crankshaft behind and in front of the balancer onto the shaft. keep in mind that there is a half moon keeper key on the shaft where the balancer slides onto the crankshaft. lube the shaft well and it should slide off with ease with the removal tool. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!

How do you remove the harmonic balancer on a 1987 GMC R3500 with a 454?


You remove the giant bolt, then you use a harmonic balancer puller, which essentially bolts up rather than using claws to grab. The bolts of the puller go into the pulley fastening bolt holes.

Something must happen to protect the crank threads, a spacer, using the retainer bolt, or whatever, just do not kill the threads.

How to use a harmonic balanced puller on a 94 Buick lasabre


Hi, it is easiest if you set the brake, jack up the car, put in a jack stand for support, and remove the wheel and splash shield to access the pulley. If you have a manual transmission, put it in a high gear and set the brake. If you have an automatic transmission, you will need to lock the engine with something, best done at the flywheel/flexplate. If there is no access panel to the flexplate, remove the starter for access. With the engine locked, remove the main pulley bolt. Use 3 quarter inch bolts to attach the puller to the pulley and tighten the puller slowly to extract the pulley. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
