How do I remove the pulley/balancer from the crank shaft so I can remove the timing cover? Any help?? Thanks. Keith

I normally use my steering wheel puller to do that. Put some washers or similar in the hole in the middle for the puller center bolt to push against, so it doesn't mess up the crankshaft threads.

Be careful when you replace it, don't try to 'pull' the hub back on with the crankshaft bolt, you may strip the threads in the crank. There is a special pusher for that. Look in the Shop Manual, they show the pusher. You can buy or rent one from Chuck Collins; go here: https://www.studebakerparts.com/studebakerparts/parts/agora.cgi?page=tools.html and scroll down about half way to "Crankshaft Tool".

Oh yeah, and when you reinstall the hub, put the front cover on "loose" and let the hub locate the front cover so the hub and seal are concentric, and then torque the front cover.

Don't most steering pullers pull by threading bolts into some holes? There are only pins that hold the disc on in front of the pulley. Are these threaded? The only other way I see is to use a claw puller but I feel that will damage the pulley. It I need I can attach a picture.

The vibration dampener justs pulls off by hand after removing the 6 small 7/16" nuts, then you will see the puller holes in the hub, which is what you really want to pull with the puller!

Got it. In behind the dampener was a rubber spacer that covered the six post. I pulled it and there where the threaded holes for pulling. There where no nuts at all. The cam timing gear came off the same way. Thanks for all the help.
