A trick I've used before is to heat the harmonic balancer up a bit before install. This gives some builders the 'willies', but I've never experienced problems. Put the harmonic balancer in the oven at about 160-180 degrees for about 45 minutes. Have a thin layer of greese on your crank and take the balancer strait from the oven and press it on (definitly with an install tool). Slides on slick as can be.
