Most fords are 15/16 inch. butyou didnt state the engine size. Youll also need a harmonic balancer puller and most parts stores can rent you one some times for no charge ( just pay for it and bring it back all together and you'll get all or most of your money back). with the balancer off you'll need to ut it or a new one back on You need a harmonic balancer installer to put it on as beating it back onewith a hammer will damage the balancer and the crank and even the whole engine. If you don't want todo all of this just take it to a mechanic that doesthis work all the time ad hasthe correct tools to do itright. Yes you can beat it off and back on but you'll likly do exensive damage. ( not always). If you don't have the right sized sockets andthe power impac to remove the bolt you had best just hire the job done as this is not a do it youself job unless your a regular ( work all day every day) mechanic.

2007 ford sport trac 4.0 v6 ive had a squeak on first startup for awhile removed the belt and the squeak is still there only last a second is it my harmonic balancer definitely sounds like a bearing?


I have heard noise like this in the camshaft from lack of lubrication on the 4.0, there were Tech bulletins about it but that was many years ago and I am retired. I would at least consult a local dealer service dept or a shop that really knows this engine and all of it's problems, and it had many. That is entirely your decision, if I were you I would turn up the radio.
