Funny thing is that on my crank bolt it was loose when I got in there. The balancer was a real bear to get off. I used a 2 arm pulley puller because 3 of the pulley bolts were sheared off. It would have been a lot easier with a 3 arm puller as there are 3 lugs on the pulley. There is a harmonic balencer puller that will help. I had to use a lot of penetrating oil and light taping with a hammer over 4 days before it would budge. If you have an Auto Zone near you they have a "free loaner" tool program where you pay for the tool and then return it in good shape and get your money back. I can not help out on the crank bolt.
