Default Crankshaft sprocket removal process

Could someone tell me if I could use the harmonic balancer pulley puller on the crankshaft sprocket to remove it? Maybe I could position the hooks right behind the lip of the sprocket to pull it out??? Please help

Exactly. Three-prong grabbing the inside lip will work best. A good quality tool will tug it right off.

Oh, and you'll use the pulley's bolt as the tool's center point. Unscrew it about 1/8 inch at a time as the pulley slips off.

Installation requires heat ... lots of heat.

There is a lot easer way guys. No eat or problems. Just go to the sticky "How To's" and go to the harmonic balancer thread and I have made and the tools to take it of and put back on. No heat required. Easer than trying to add a link from my phone. Lol. More can be seen in my project thread. Around page 9
I think.

These posters may have the same weird crank sprocket my 03 GT has, where there are no threaded holes on the sprocket to use either the correct miller tool as listed in the FSM, or the steering wheel puller you used. In both your writeup and in Xwing777's writeup, you guys have a crank sprocket as shown in the FSM where you have longer slotted holes and normal threaded holes in it.

My crank sprocket only has small holes equally spaced going around the sprocket but none are threaded. I am not sure how to get this off. So far I haven't found a write up with this weird sprocket. I wonder if I can tap the crank sprocket.

This is the puller I use, haven't had any problems.
It pulls on the inside of the crank pulley.

Hi Joe, thanks for your reply, however you are talking about and showing the tool for the crank pulley which drives the accessory belts, but not for the crank sprocket which drives the timing belt.

My crank seal is leaking so I need to remove that sprocket to be able to change the seal. The FSM, as well as the how to threads on the forum, have pictures of a crank sprocket which has threaded holes so that you can thread bolts into it to, using the correct Miller specialty tool or a steering wheel puller, pull it off. Mine doesn't have those threaded holes. I can't post a picture now, but maybe later I can.

False alarm. Hehe. �� it does have 6mm threaded holes as normal. I just couldn't see them with my crappy work light.

Sure, blame it all on the flashlight. But in truth, it's time to consider those bifocals.

Don't for get the magnifying glass as well as the bifocals not to mention the brightest light bulbs man can find. Now you just need extra pair hands to actually do something with. Welcome to old age people.

I took great pains to make sure I not only could get these things off but back on without hawing a hammer. And as cost affective as you can get. The puller show earlier works great if it's not stuck. But it pulls out of the slots if to tight. The 4" puller I used cannot pull out. My Harmonic thread makes it easy if you plan ahead and get a few tings lined up to do this job. I have to do this two not times. Keep my homemade stuff and my other universal stuff handy to do it again when needed.

Well Busted, Myckee and I aren't quite up to that "Viagra age" yet. But at least we have you to lead (and point) the way.

PS: Have you ever noticed that the sexy older age-appropriate women in the Viagra TV ads are much more attractive than the ones in the Cialis ads? I told my wife that if I even need that blue pill, she's going to have to step up her game like those women in order to justify the cost.
