Thanks for the suggestions guys. I finally solved the problem. I'll tell you what I did in case this ever happens to you.
The standard puller that you buy/borrow from the parts store doesn't fit these balancers. The point that attaches to the center bolt on the puller is too large to fit THROUGH the balancer and push against the crank shaft. So, when you tighten the center bolt to pull the balancer it jams is the center hole of balancer. When that happens you're pulling against the balancer and not pushing it off the crank shaft. So....after I drilled out the stuck point, I stuck a short metal rod into the center hole on the balancer and used the puller WITHOUT the point on the center bolt (driving against the metal rod). Once I was actually pushing off the crank, the balancer came right off.
Oh, by the way, the balancer for the VIN 1 (supercharged) engine is not the same as the one for the VIN L engines. Unfortunately, the the VIN 1 balancer is $220 at the dealer and doesn't seem to be available at any local parts stores or wrecking yards.
