No, the bolt is not left handed. You do need to turn it counter-clockwise to loosen it. You're probably just spinning the engine when trying to loosen it. I use a 6" c-clamp and attach it behind the balancer in a way that the threaded shaft can lodge up against something so the engine can't turn. Then I use a 3 lb rubber mallet and hit the 1/2" drive rachet on the handle, or put a breaker bar on the end of it and work it loose that way. Once you get the bolt off, you will need to use a pulley puller to get the balancer off.

Is there a special procedure for removing the harmonic balancer? i've tried several times using different methods to no avail. is the main bolt reverse threaded? tools used so far are a breaker bar, a...


The retaining bolt comes off in counter clockwise turn, they most likely used lock tight when it was installed and it is installed at probably 1200 lbs torque. the 21 gal compressor most likely doesn't have the power needed to remove that bolt. Once the bolt is removed you need the special tool to remove that balancer, it is a 3 leg pulley puller with a center insert that sits in the same hole that bolt comes out of and the pulley puller applies pressure to that insert while pulling the pulley off.

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.

I need to find the timing (TDC) marks for my 95 isuzu rodeo. I had to replace the front main seal gasket. I had to pull the harmonic balancer to get to the seal. I put everything back together & now...


There is no way that could happen unless you did not put the woodruff key back into the crankshaft recess and put crank pulley on random!!!
