Balancer Removal

Trying to remove the balancer on my wifes 2000 Intrigue. Sucker seems like it was forged on there its so tight. I got the bolt out but now need to get the balancer off the crank shaft. Any ideas? Tried usung a puller like in the manual but no luck yet will look at it again today.

Use a gear puller. It comes right off.

LOL yeah if it was a snake it would have bit me..LMAO.....i have found that using cheap pullers will not cut it....and yes i got a puller like the one in the pic and it came right off. Around here there was nothing for $18 bucks or even $30.00 bucks but the ones that had arms that would not fit behind the balancer i had to get an OTC version. But its off now. Thanks.

First-time posting, so please bear with me. I've done a lot on my 99 Intrigue (3.5) over the years, but anxious now that I'm messing with the harmonic balancer. I've removed the old, broken balancer and pressed on the new one until the bolt on the press tool suddenly became very tight. It seemed to be bottomed out.

With the press tool off, I see that the balancer is not perfectly flush with the crank. The crank is recessed -- I am guessing between 1/2 and 1 millimeter (closer to 1/2?).

I've looked exhaustively online and even have the service manual, but I've seen nothing definitive about this.

It seems that either way I approach it -- go back and try to press it down further, or, go ahead and install the original bolt to torque specs, I run the risk of damaging the crank threads.

There was a post a while back on an aurora board with the same question -- the guy tried and tried but could never press it down until flush -- but no answer on the thread.

In the photo where krivasolds is pulling the balancer -- it kinda looks like it was not flush to start with.

Anybody know what the spec is on this? Is it supposed to be flush before I run the original bolt back on?

Thanks!
