How do you remove a harmonic balancer on a 91 Ranger 4.0 engine? It is not like balancers I have seen before. My Ford shop manual says to use
T74P-6316-A remover. I have a Snap on puller kit, but I cannot seem to make it work no matter what I do. Need help. Thanks.
The threads in the balancer are metric. Nobody sells bolts (ok cap screws) long enough to use most standard pullers. Go get some threaded rod, cut it to however long it needs to be, and get four nuts, and some washers. Jam the nuts together on the one end, put the washers on, and assemble with your puller. You know what to do from there.
IIRC the right metric size is M7 or something like that.
I found out all you have to do is use a 3/8" X 5" bolt and slide it in the
damper bolt hole so that it bottoms out in the crank bolt hole. Then use a regular balancer puller to push against the the 3/8" bolt. Real simple.
And no special tools.
