Let me tell you about that compact puller. I was at Summit Point. Balancer
went south. I went into the bed of my pickup scrounging thru parts.
Meanwhile, Smitty and my son Mike, an outstanding wrench, found a balancer
in the trailer. Smitty told Mike, I know Chuck has one of Russ' tools for
that. By the time I came out of the pickup bed with a balancer, Mike was
finishing up installing the balancer and had only the fan belt to replace.
Really a worthwhile addition to your tool box.
A few reasons that I like that puller is that it is easy to keep the engine from turning over
while pulling the balancer off (by putting a wrench on the cross bar of the puller), it protects the
end of the crank from mushrooming, and of course, tight balancers (like I have) come right off
with no swearing and no damaged parts! I bought it after getting pissed off trying all of the "other"
ways too many times.... decided it wasn't worth the exasperation anymore to save some money.
