Unhappy Crankshaft pulley

Hi folks, I need some help with this cause I don't want to buy a new pulley. Nice 3 jaw puller, tapped puller with hammer, pulley won't budge. Any tips, tricks, words of wisdom ??? Can I use a little heat? Yes, I know it's got rubber in it.......

I have removed a lot of crank pulleys in my time, never had this problem before.....

Thanks in advance,

Jon

Thanks, I'll give it another try. How much pressure can I put to it before I bend the thing ?

Buy the time you get the puller in the balancer, either the puller breaks or something gives. What are you pushing against? Put as much pressure on it as you can then tap the end with a heavy hammer. Couple licks. the retighten. This should break the bond of the two. Pictures! Really close.

Ok, got good 3 jaw puller, hardened steel socket extension to slide in end of crank, loose fit, installed puller, tightened puller, very tight, tapped puller, pulley moved, repeat process, pulley removed, so far so good, then disaster, I now have a socket extension permenantly inserted in the end of the crankshaft! The damn thing must have bent under pressure. Any ideas on getting it out ??

Smile Re: Crankshaft pulley

Got the socket extension out of the end of the crank, no damage, extension not bent. There is a step at the bottom of the bolt hole and the extension just happened to be the right size to get wedged in there. All is well........

Well maybe a round bolt would work better. But you did get it off. Take some scotch bright and polish the crank and pulley before you put it back on with a light oil. Don't drive it on with a hammer. Use the method I gave to prevent damage. Take pictures to refer back on if any questions arrive. If you ask me if I got mine in time. I can show you. Keep us posted on you progress.

Thanks, a round bolt would be better, no more than 3/8 inch, 5.25 to 5.5 long with the threads cut off and the end rounded a bit. I drilled a divit in the head to keep the puller centered. Works good.
