Dose anyone know the diameter and pitch of the holes on the front of the harmonic balancer? I need to pick up some bolts for my puller, and none of the bolts in my bin match up...

Thanks,

I had an 8x1.25 and bought an 8x1 but no go. 7 sounds right, but I'm guessing they are near impossible to find. I might just tap them out to 8x1. Thanks for the reply.

You use a puller? My crank pulley comes right off by hand, maybe a little assistance from a screwdriver if it has been on for a long time. That is why they want 195 lb/ft on the pulley bolt.

The engine is off the car, but I would rather no mess around with a hammer or jaw type puller when I have the 'right' tool. The only one I have removed in the past was on tight and chipped the pulley with a pry bar. That was a junk motor so no big deal on that one...

Just did this yesterday. The bolt is 7X1.0. Use the starter method. I used a 625 ft-lb impact gun and the bolt would not come off. A 1/2 inch breaker bar and a long pipe works. Make sure the breaker bar is on the driver side looking from the front. Do a quick crank and the bolt is broken free. For getting the pulley off I stuck a screwdriver behind it and it came off really easy. The proper way is the puller tho.
