Trying to help a friend disassemble the engine from a 1950 chevy. How do you remove the harmonic balancer??...we have a service manual but still can't figure it out. If I had the special puller and saw it demonstrated it would be easy...nothing is ever easy!!<BR>Thanks in advance<BR>Willie

I bought a "universal" harmonic balance puller at an auto supply store a number of years ago and it worked on a couple of my cars, including my '34 Chevy, which is an engine very similar to yours, I think. The puller wasn't all that expensive as I recall. Give us your location - maybe we can find someone in the area who can loan you one.

Willie,<BR>Try an Auto parts store, Hi Low or Auto Zone. They have the pullers you need.<BR>Get a much longer bolt to bottom out in the crank and put the puller on.<BR>Put the screw on the bolt and the arms around the balancer and tighten the center bolt. I normally hit it lightly with a hammer (the screw in the puller) once it is tight. It normally pops off pretty easy after that.<BR>What are you doing playing with Chevy's anyway ?<BR>Bill<BR>

BUSTED while playing Chevies!!...anyhow I'm just helping a friend who inherited this beast. We got the balancer off with my puller...that thing does not have any bolts nuts or screws holding it to the trankshaft..just a press/interference fit. Someday I'll probably need to know how to install this thing. The engine was frozen and will need a lot machine work and parts. hmmmm....looks like a Buick 322 will fit nicely...<P>Willie
