check out different methods on holding the Harmonic Balancer Puller when loosening and retorqueing. I and several other have made a tool for holding the pulley. If you have the original '89 H.B. still on yours it will be missing the 2 holes in it that the unavaiable dealer or homemade tool fits in. (Sorry, after I ruined my engine by bolt failure, I got a HB off a 91 with "said holes". I got the bolt for like $5 and the washer for $ 3. (beware a dodge dealer ((stealer) here wanted $19 for the bolt. Korum Mitsubishi , on the net, in Wash. state is a good place. I've always been chicken to prybar on the flywheel , but that's cause I'm a chicken, but that is probably the way your gonna do it. There is a fanbelt type wrench in the 89 FSM , but I don't think it would hold easilly and get an acurate torqueing without breaking some knukles. I would recommend you do this 1st, before getting into a bunch of other projects. I live in misery every day for my neglagence of my H.B. bolt.
