WAG, is it possible you use the type with the arms that grab behind whatever you are pulling? That makes no sense for a harmonic balancer, but it wouldn't be the first time something didn't make sense.
Like this one, and note it says in applications: "...Ford 1995 and later V8...."
got the balancer off, dried grease covered the holes and couldn't see them, poked around with a pick and it pushed right through. Can't believe how much stuff builds up inside the bottom pulley over the years.
