I have an automatic transmission and need to replace harmonic balancer and can't get bolt off. Need help. I have puller but there are no threads to screw to keep puller in place. Any other methods

Use a large breaker bar and impact socket, and wedge against the ground or on the frame of vehicle, some place it won't kick out and turn the ignition key to tap starter (crank engine) quickly and starter will free bolt. Make sure that the breaker bar is on your right side looking at the bolt. Then use puller if needed to remove balancer.

How to Use a Cotterless Crank Puller Tool

How to Use a Crank Puller Tool

  • Crank pullers are commonly used to remove the crank arm from many types of exercise bikes. The tool can be used on most brands of indoor cycles and stationary upright or recumbent bikes. This tool cannot be used on bikes equipped with a 1-piece crank arm.
  • Using the crank puller is simple and easy; Start by removing the crank arm bolt.
  • First you will need to remove the plastic crank bolt cover from the crank arm to access the bolt. This can be done using a flat head screwdriver or a penny from your pocket.
  • Remove the crank arm bolt. This can require a hex wrench or a socket wrench.
  • Next, thread the crank puller tool into the crank arm in place of the crank bolt cover. Thread the tool into the crank arm several threads. It may be necessary to use a wrench to tighten further.
  • Now that you have this part of the tool threaded into the crank arm, turn the handle on the tool. As you continue to turn the handle of the tool, this pulls the crank arm off the bottom bracket shaft.

How to replace timing gears and chain 3.4L Camaro 1994

You can rent a harmonic balancer puller from Autozone real cheap. If you have access to an air compressor, I'd advize use an impact. Much easier and faster.

I need to take my bicycle crank apart

I assume you have a three piece crank (axle plus two crank arms). Go look at the Park Tools website. You will need to remove the little hubcap about the size of a 50 cent piece, then remove the nut on the end of the axle, then use a crank puller to pull the crank off. The crank puller is like a wheel puller in that it has a bold in the middle the pushes against the end of the axle, but instead of having jaws the hook on the outside of the wheel, it has a large male thread that screws into the threads where the hubcap was screwed into. Good luck.

How do i replace the crank bearing on a 2010 giant x4

you need a crank puller to do that job. they dont cost much. once you take off cover off crank you screw crank puller in and use shifter or spanner to tighten bolt on crank puller and it will pull crank off easily, then undo main cover to access bearings. better to change both sides.

I have to repair my Schwinn airdyne bicycle. I cannot separate the lever that is on the crank which attaches to what handle. A piece broke off which makes the pedal wobble and I have the replacement gear...

I can only assume you are attempting to remove the crank from the bottom bracket. This sounds like an square taper bottom bracket.
As such you are more than likely going to need a "crank puller" which is a special tool that threads into the large threads in the end of the crank and will allow you to push the crank off the bottom bracket as you tighten the center bolt (on the crank puller tool)
If you have a gearing puller handy you can also make that work with a little fanangaling.

Bottem pulley on engine block is making noise, I think the bearings are going out. What is this pulley attached to and can it be lubricated?

the bottom pulley is the crank pulley. It is attached to the crank shaft. It has two parts, an inner and an outer that are joined together with a rubber isolator. Over time the rubber breaks down and the inner part part of the puller will start to rotate independently from the outer part of the pulley creating a unigue clacking noise.

To solve this you'll need a standard crank pulley puller set. You'll remove the crank bolt and then use the pulley puller to pull the crank pulley off of the crank shaft. The install the new pulley making sure to torque the crank pulley bolt to the proper spec.

I am trying to remove the covers on my Schwinn 418 elliptical trainer. The covers hang up on the crank/flywheel. The repair manual says to use a crank puller. Is there another way. If not what type of...

Hello there. Unfortunatley there is no way other than removing the crank arms. You do need to remove the nut on the axle and you will need a crank puller. The puller is available at any local bicycle shop for around 10-15 dollars.
Good Luck Tim

How do I remove a crank arm from a Huffy Mountain bike?

You will need to purchase a crank puller. If you only have to do this once you are better off having it repaired in a bike shop unless you like to have tools for everything. They come in various sizes so you will have to tell the dealer which one you need and for what bike. It works like a gear puller. You remove the cap covering the bolt. You remove the bolt or nut holding the crank on and screw the puller into the threads on the crank. You then tighten the bolt that goes through the center of the puller. It puts pressure on the bolt in the center of the crank and forces the crank off. Hope this helps.
