You have to remove that big old center bolt first (the small allen head bolts just hold the pulley on). Purchase an appropriately sized pulley puller, rig it up to allow removal of the balancer, tighten down on the center (pulling) bolt of the puller and the balancer will come right off. Leave the two pins in place.
I have done this but it does not seem to want to come off. The puller I have is not the best but it has always worked for me before. If it is stuck on any advice on coaxing it off? The bolts sheered flush and I will have to take it off to try to drill them out.
