Tool....

anyone got a freaking puller to get the damper out safely? a cousin of mine told me he had one that had a shaft that went down to the ground, and then had a wrench included (or something, hard to explain) to get the giant screw that holds the damper in.

i need to get it out so i can get a cover out in order to put the new timing belt on, but i have heard of a few different types of pullers and i need a picture of a good one so i know exactly wat to look for.

Harmonic balancer puller. You can borrow one of mine but you'll have to come pick it up.

What he was probably describing was a harmonic balancer holder to keep the balancer from spinning while you loosened the bolt. If you can get an impact wrench in there you shouldn't need the balancer holder.

The puller that vwhobo showed is a good generic balancer puller as long as your balancer has threaded holes. Some do not so it will depend on your application.

to get the bolt off, you could use the old hillbilly trick where you put the socket and breaker bar on the crank bolt, brace it against something really sturdy (like the frame or the ground) and bump the starter w/ the coil unhooked... but i don't suggest anyone do that for liability reasons...

had to do that many times...usually subaru's. now if it's a neon and they practically forge the thing on there you might wanna invest in a snap-on puller, i bent 2 before i actually went to chrysler and asked them for theres they wanted 800$ for there special puller, i told the guy to go fornicate himself and hopped on the snap-on truck, if you can bend the snap-on one they'll give you a new one for free just don't tell em what you were using it for...or lie through your teeth, the dealers usually dont give 2 turds anyway

Don't they have AutoZone or Advance down there? You can borrow them for free.

Here they just charge a deposit to make sure the tool comes back.

Pep Boys, yes. Western Auto is basically non-existent here now except for some old srores in small towns. But they do belong to Advance, and they do it, so maybe. It seems to me it'd be quicker to call them than to ask me. Or you could just buy one. A cheapo from a car parts store only costs $12ish.
