we have snapped Craftsman 1/2" ratchets on those crank bolts... Once we had to dig the 3/4" out of my friends house..

He still had tools he used on Busses...lol

Its freaky to see a 3/4 Impact if you have never seen one before... Big heavy sucker

There is a dangerous way to do this that might help. I will only tell you if all else fails though.

Did you use penetrant and let it soak overnight? Since the balancer is trash anyways, what about some heat on that bolt??

John, per our phone convo last night, the 3 bolts that will go through the puller into the HB through the 3 slots are indeed M6x1 as I suspected. They need to be at LEAST 1.75" or 45mm long PLUS the thickness of your puller, PLUS the thickness of whatever washers you have to use to keep them from pulling out through the puller. I suggest some stacked washers.

Now here'* the tricks:

You may have to rotate the outer and inner rings to find one of the 3 holes, unless your rubber hasn't torn completely around. ONE of the 3 holes is 'blind'. It bottoms out. The other 2 go THROUGH. So longer bolts are no big deal on 2 of them, but on that one hole, if your M6 bolt is too long, you'll need washers between the bolt head and puller.

I've had these issues with both of my HB failures. Make sense to you the way I described it?

Do NOT use 1/4-28 SAE threaded bolts as suggested in another topic. They are not SAE. They are Metric M6x1 (1mm thread pitch).

Sounds like the HB to me. Might as well replace the tensioners while you're in there, though.

Bob, the SC tensioner is new. I installed it about a year ago. I believe he'* changed the ACC tensioner since then.

Bolt is off, FINALLY....

Bill, Both my dad and I didn't have any luck at Auto Zone or Home Depot Auto Parts trying to find something long enough. PLUS, the M6x1 will go in only a little ways then gets REAL tight REAL quick. Are you SURE that'* the right thread pitch?

I'm going to have to go to a custom bolt place in Tacoma area.

Why must they make these cars so complicated....
