Hey guys,

What tool did you use to pull the pilot bearing.. mine seems pretty wedged in there... it wont come out...

Also what did you use to take off the harmoic balance timing belt thing.. I need to change the fornt main.

Thanks,

The pilot bearing, if you dont have a tool for it, feel it up with grease, then find a center punch that fits it snug and hammer nice and firm and the grease will push out hte pilot bearing and as for the front go get a harmonic balance pully puller, threads in 2 bolts and tighten the center bolt and it will come out :) aight peace :run:

O'reilly has a perfect harmonic balancer puller for 15 bucks....buy it....comes in awefully handy when you have to do the front main again because it didn't seal the first time (such as in my case). HERE IS A TIMING BELT TIP: instead of completely removing the grenade pin tensioner mechanism, just loosen the bolts just enough to relieve tension to slide the belt off. Once you pull the pin, you have to go through the PITA to get enough force to push the thing back in to get the pin in again...not worth it.

so did I the first time I installed the new seal when the motor was still out of the car....then I F'd up on the install (didn't get it in all the way, forgot the all-purpose grease too).

BTW...I love the title of this thread....the HOMONIC balancer....it is a little ****, i must admit :)

Using this method can lead to the tensioner applying too much tension on the belt. I have always just used a C clamp and a small drill bit, its really easy.

Pilot bearing tool OTC 4420 available in 2020 works perfectly. It comes with 2 sets of jaws, and I removed the jaw set that was installed with it and put in the smaller secondary set and pulled mine with two easy pulls on the slide hammer yesterday. Once you insert the end of the tool into the pilot bearing you need to thread the shaft deeper into the end of the tool so it expands the jaws and then let her rip.
