Harmonic Balancer puller. can buy, or can use Auto Zone's tool loaner deal, where you pay for it, use it, then bring it back for a refund. I advise using an impact wrench on that crank bolt. if you use a breaker bar, you may move the crankshaft, and lose you timing match-up - it is on there tight. It needs to be re-torqued to the specified value, too. Make sure your torque wrench will reach the bolt first.

i found it just as easy to remove the bolt then either use a pry bar behind it or just pull with my hand and tap the flat edge gently but aggresivly with a hammer. it will come off...
