Need a harmonic balancer puller.. Can be rented at some auto parts stores. Some will sell them.
It threads into the hub of the balancer and has a bolt in the center that is rotated to exert pressure on the crankshaft.
Each rotation of the bolt will create more force and move the balancer a little at a time until it is clear of the end of the crankshaft.
