There is a large diameter bolt in the crankshaft to un- bolt. You may have to remove other parts to have working room. These can be a pain to replace.. have patience

Need to replace the harmonic balancer on a 1992 odlsmobile 98 regency


A harmonic balancer puller-cheap and easy to use-available at any auto parts store. The hardest part is getting the crankshaft pulley bolt loose. An impact tool is best, but not absolutely necessary. Old school way: not recommended, but I've done it this way: put a socket and long stout breaker bar on the crank bolt. Let the breaker bar end rest on the ground. Now use the starter to just bump the engine over one quick time-just one little bump is all it takes to loosen the crank bolt- if you positioned the breaker bar right. Good luck, Joe.

How do I remove the harmonic balancer on a 1992 Chevrolet Lumina APV. I have removed the bolt from the crankshaft and the Haynes book says to remove it by hand. It will not move.


You will need to get a puller. They can be bought at most autoparts stores, some will even rent them. Just be sure that you tell them it's for a harmonic balancer. Attach it to the balancer with the included bolts and tighten it up. When it gets tight give the tightening bolt a sharp rap with a hammer and tighten some more. Continue until the balancer comes off. Hope this helps.

My 1992 Ford Tempo won't start. It acts like it wants to start by turning over but there is no catch to fire it up. So far the alternator, harmonic balancer, fuel pump, plugs,distributor and filters...


...the harmonic balancer was replaced? I hope that was not in relation to your vehicle not starting - if it was, that was a waste of money. The first three things to check for are fuel, air, and spark.
You need to test if the spark is making it to the end of the spark plug - can be done by removing a plug and placing it in the wire - and setting it near something that it can arc to. Just don't zap yourself.
Next, check for fuel pressure.
Check for a clogged air intake system or dirty air filter.

After than you'd check for compression - by putting a compression gauge in to a spark plug port. If the compression is low or off by 25% in one cyl from the different ones, this is an issue.

How do I take off the harmonic balancer on a 4.0 liter engine


You will have to take the belt off and then take the bolt out of the center that holds it onto the crankshaft. then You need a "harmonic balancer" puller, It has slots that bolt to the inner part of the balancer and you screw in the big center bolt. As you tighten the bolt it "pulls" the balancer. Here is a picture;

Need to pull the harmonic balancer. Do i need a puller 1992 cutlas ciera c with 3300 v6.


Yes. You always need a puller for the harmonic balancer. Never try to remove it without a puller. You may be able to rent one at the auto parts store or borrow one from a friend. Hope this helps.

I have a ford f-250 with 460 engine. 1983 model and have to replace the front crank seal. how much trouble is it?I already have the radiator off and replacing it.


You'll need to remove the crankshaft pulley and the harmonic balancer, which you'll need a harmonic balancer removal tool. The center bolt is usually on really tight. You can use a seal puller to remove the crankshaft seal from the timing cover.

Hi I am looking for a how to replace the bottom pulley from the serpentine belt the pulley is broken and needs replacing


If this is the pulley I'm thinking about it is the harmonic balancer. If you need to remove it, remove the center bolt out of it and get a balancer puller and remove it.

HARMONIC BALANCER


I have a '94 Tempo, it had a "ticking" sound. It was the "harmonic balancer" (crankshaft pulley) a local mechanic changed it for $60, the part cost me $120 (I work for a Ford dealership) $180 without employee discount. you can get one for much less at a junkyard if you can find one. Good luck, Sean
