Not too familiar with that engine, but never use a hammer to press it on. Go to your local Kragen, Shucks or autozone, they have a harmonic balancer installer in which you can rent. It simply screws into the center of the shaft and evenly presses the harmonic balancer onto the crankshaft.

Behind the harmonic balancer. You will need to remove the right front tire, remove the access panel to the engine (through the wheel well), remove engine belt, remove harmonic balancer & pulley with a puller. Remove & replace crank sensor, align sensor with an alignment tool, replace balancer with an installer tool.. BE VERY careful with the balancer, the backside of it has a hall effect style blades. bending these blades will junk the balancer.
