It was a piece of cake. Unbolt the old and remove and put the new one on. You may need a new seal depending on how old it is. I used a file and made a little groove to match the timing mark. I used the key slot as a line up reference

Walston I got my crank pulley/ harmonic balancer about 3/4 of the way on using the loaner install tool, but now it’s extremely slow Going with max effort on each wrench turn. Did you find it became very difficult for the last 1 1/2 inches or so? Thanks

If it requires a lot of effort you should pull it back off and see what's going on. Make sure the nose of the crank is clean and smooth. Likewise with the inner bore of the damper. Since it's not original make sure it's not interfering with something. It shouldn't be but it's always wise to make sure.
If those look good then it might be that the damper is on the tight side of the tolerance and may need a hone to make it a hair larger so that it goes on more easily.

I had no such issue. I agree with Charlie.

I found a spring company in Kentucky that is will to make them. $94 each. He would need a sample to make an accurate copy though.
