Harmonic Balancer/Crank Pulley Removal...
dodge sucks! what idiot designed the new harmonic balancer/crank pulley? were the design engineers for the tranny, intake manifold, tracbar and harmonic balancer all at the same lunch? dumbasses!! I am so freekin pissed right now, (have to rant and rave to get it out of my system). I havent pulled a crank pulley in many years. I recall it is quite easy, read the manual, get the balancer remover tool out, hook it up and start cranking on the center bolt... and bamm... it's off. But NOOOOO the dumbass who designed this pulley on MY truck had to decide to use a 3 jaw puller to remove it. OK, so I go rent a 6" puller... no way it fits, jaws are too thick to get back to where they need to hook up. so I go get a 4", jaws are the same size just shorter. damn it!!! So what gives? anyone pull a balancer off a 2000 or newer 360?
I basiclly wasted 1/2 a day trying to get that damn thing off... I could have put my r/t heads on and had them all torqued down with the new 1.7's just waiting for the intake to be modded.
Anyway, thanks for reading... I feel better now!!!
