Thanks for the suggestions. My impact wrench is a standard size one, but it
would not fit because to the air conditioning radiator. The vise grip trick did
not work either. Here is what I came up with that worked really well.
A piece of 1/2" rebar positioned under the altenator bracket and the power
steering bracket. Then a steel tent hold down spike fitted through the
existing hole on the harmonic balancer. (I bent the spike so that it would
not hit the ac radiator, it was easier to bend it then to cut it) Then a large
breaker bar and a socket and i was able to get it off.
Now I am having trouble removing the harmonic balancer. I saturated with
penetrating oil and used a pully puller, and it didn't even budge. I think I
may need a larger puller.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
