    Default New question, balancer

    Trying to remove balancer and it will not budge!!!!!!!! The ears on the puller are bending!!! Granted, it is not a high dollar puller. Any ideas???

    Yes, the center bolt is out. Thought I would handle that up front

    Don't do it by hand, use a impact wrench( in case your not doing it that way).

    Tighten down the puller. When it starts to bend hit the puller on its bolt head with a BFH and it should pop.

    Your going to have to get a good puller and use antisieze on the threads then put the impact to it, I went through several cheap ones then bought a better one , I think it was a Lyle tools .
    What kind of balancer? The one that I have is an ATI and its on a callies crank. Sumb-tch fits tight. But dont have to worry about it coming off
    Hope you've got a good installer to put it back on with, and not a BFH with a block of wood.
    Since I bought the good puller I've had mine off several times with no problems.

    The hammer on the puller works good on a prop puller too. Guys try to muscle them off and bend the puller. I loaned mine out once and the guy had to replace it. As they say, if all else fails, get a bigger hammer.

    Big thanks to Doug ( Trashman). He brought over a high zoot puller and we got the thing off. Looks like the key was binding on the balancer.

    Get yourself one of this The thing will either come off, orthe puller will rip it apart. But something is going to give, and it isn't this thing.
