Why build a puller, drop the engine etc.. ?
All you need are two long threaded bolts to fit the two small holes in the
balancer. Tighten them gently and evenly and the balancer will come right
off. The only thing you NEED to remove is the oil filter. The bolts bear on
the steel flange of the rear main seal so no damage to the housing.
