Help replacing Harmonic Balancer
#1
Finally getting to replacing the Harmonic balancer.
I removed the shrowd and fan, and all the belts.

I didn't remove the radiator, trying to avoid a bigger mess.

How is the pulley removed from the front of the balancer?
Is it just one big bolt in the center or is there more?

I am buying the balancer removal tool tomorrow.

Just need to take off the pulley first.

Thanks

Its just one big bolt in the middle , take it out and use a puller to take the balancer of.

That's it.

There are 4, usually crud encrusted, bolts holding the pulley to the balancer. There is also one big bolt into the crank holding the balancer on.

Do the 4 "Cross Haired" smaller bolts need to be removed also?

My 73 has 4 small bolts holding the pulley on. Remove the 4 bolts. Just wanted to add. Make sure your HB puller doesn't slip inside the crank bolt hole. It will mess up the threads.
Most pullers have a big enough flat surface so you don't have to worry but something to watch for. Mark

I finally got the pulley off.

Now I am trying to remove the main bolt but the balancer is rotating the crank.
Is this normal?
How is the center bolt removed without spinning the balancer?

what usually works for me is to get a breaker bar and take a hammer and give one or two hard blows and it breaks loose

Is it OK if the Crankshaft turns while I am trying to break the bolt loose?
