You can try to get a tap extractor from an industrial supply house or well-equipped auto parts store. But yes, the older SBCs just used the press fit to hold the balancer on. The bolt is for peace of mind and wouldn't hold a loose balancer on for long anyway. If you balancer is tight enough, you should be okay. And and this point, you have no choice but to pound it on. Pound on the center hub with a flat piece of metal to protect the hub mounting area.
