Dean, if there's a Harbor Freight tools store on the island (didn't see one in passing when I was there a few weeks ago..), you could pick up this puller set from them, Granted, it's not a tool set you'll likely find in a professional shop, but it will do the job at least once. For the $10, it's hard to beat. If I'm not mistaken, I think you can also "rent" a puller like that from Autozone. Around here, you pay the purchase price in rent, then get it all back when you return the tool. Just another option for you.


In a while, Chet.

Puller

Hi Dean, You can make a installer pretty easy from a long bolt the same size screwed in the crank and using a large , thick washer.Thread a nut down pulling your dampener on crank. The puller can be made from a 3/8 round plate with a nut welded (same size as crank bolt) in center. You need 3 , 7/16 holes to line up with holes in dampener to pull it off. You can use same long bolt to remove. Put washer (inside) dampener hole so puller bolt does not thread as you remove dampener. Sorry no pics. Hopes this helps. jim

A puller does not need to be "Y" shaped.
If you take a piece of 3/8" or 1/2" piece of steel plate and drill 3 holes to bolt it to the damper and a center hole with a welded nut. Then get a piece of threaded rod for the center and you have a puller.
Clear as mud?

Advance and Auto Zone (if you have either there) has a tool loaner program, that is you simply leave the price of the tool for a deposit and when you return it they refund all your money. You do not have to be a regular customer nor do you have to buy your parts there the policy is to rent to anyone whether buying parts or not.

My installer is a short length of 7/16"x20 all-thread with a nut and couple of washers and some HP grease. Use the fat OEM washer between the balancer and the 7/16" washers. I have used a small thrust bearing from an A/C clutch installation tool in the mix, and it works well if centered properly, and it eliminates the need for all the grease.

I don't believe anyone has said it yet, but do not use a hammer to install the balancer. It plays havoc with the end clearance on the crank.

if you use a piece of steel 1/4" or thicker, against the damper, it is ok to beat it on with a large hammer, but DO NOT I repeat _DO NOT_ did I mention DO _NOT_ hit the balancer directly with a hammer!!!!!

allthough my buddy DID just install his with a plastic-faced "dead blow" hammer and it seemed to go on ok...
