OEM Tools Harmonic Balancer Puller

It seems I have always been on the quest to find the best 3 jaw puller that works on many harmonic balancers. No, really, I am not kidding. I always had a few laying around so I could try to make something work. I came across this one awhile ago. I normally use it on F150 5.4L 3v Triton engines, including the 4.6, but it also works on the 3.5L Ecoboost. Check out how this 3 Jaw Harmonic Balancer Puller saved my day.

OEM Tools 3 Jaw Harmonic Balancer Puller saved my butt a few times, but really came to the rescue on a GM.

Recently, I was doing a timing chain replacement on a Chevy Colorado, wait, I mean GMC Canyon I4 2.8L, in the home garage for my brother. This little tool came in quite handy as it slipped right on and pulled that harmonic balancer off. None of my other pullers would do it because of the length of the crankshaft pulley bolt with integrated washer.

On most of the Fords, I remove the bolt, remove the washer, and reinstall the bolt. Since the washer is not removable on this Canyon, I had to use the right tool for the job. Those multiple length pushrods were just the ticket I needed to get the job done. I've dedicated another post just to the GM 2.9L Engine Crazyness - What were they thinking?.

Maintaining vehicles can be really expensive. How will you pay for it? I can get you an easy $50 back if you apply for a Discover Credit Card using this link. Easy Approval! Even bad credit. If approved you will get the $50 AND get credit to spend on these repairs.
