How do you remove the balancer pulley on a 1992 Grand Am 3300 engine. The Haynes manual says not to use a puller?

If your talking the main harmonic balancer on the crankshaft, you will need a puller to remove that. I can't think of any pulleys that would allow you to pull them off by hand. Your local autoparts store will have a removal tool for more than likely around 20-25 dollars.

Depends on the engine make, but you almost always need a large 3-jaw gear puller. Look at your engine manual for specific instructions.

It is located behind the harmonic balancer on the front of the engine. You'll need a special puller to remove the balancer.

Remove the big center bolt that holds the harmonic balancer in place. If you have a complete hub puller assembly, it should screw into threaded holes. You'll need to work something out to protect the crankshaft threads when you tighten down the puller, just be aware that you don't want to destroy the crankshaft by messing up the threads. Tighten the puller and it should remove the harmonic balancer for you.

You will need a harmonic balancer puller. Remove crankshaft bolt and washer, reinstall bolt without the washer approximately 10 turns. This will protect the threads in the crankshaft. Install puller and remove balancer. You cannot remove the balancer without this puller. They are inexpensive or try to borrow one.

Harmonic balancer serviceThis requires a gear puller. Always note: A harmonic balancer is made of two parts. The two parts are metal and they are made to nest one inside the other. If you look at the balancer you will notice a ring somewhere in the device. This ring is made of isolation material. Never pull the balancer from any point outside the ring. It will likely separate the balancer at this intersection. On my 1996 van I used a two arm puller because the gaps in the "spokes" of the inner part allowed a two arm puller to be centere over the mounting bolt (center of pully). If two arm type does not work then a three arm puller will likely be the one you need. If the blancer does not have spokes then you will need a steering wheel type puller or a puller made specifically for you balancer. I have had to make pullers for older 1990 and earlier engines. Once you have the correct puller you will need to remove the center mount bolt on the balancer. Usually you can then remove the washer that is used on this bolt and then re-install the bolt but do not thread it all the way in. You can now use the head of the bolt as the push point for the center bolt of the puller. install the puller of your choice and slowly and carefully tighten the pully . The balancer should slide slowly off the shaft.To reinstall the balancer. align it with any keyways or other markers on the shaft. Push the balancer on far enough for the installation bolt to be used with the washer. Then use the installation bolt to pull the balancer into position.Good luck.You should be done at this point.
