617 front crank spacer ring

Anyone use the special tool, see attachment? Pricey, but I'm a tool nut.

If so, how'd it go?

If not, how did you remove it?

I have the Repair-Flix cd-rom, but don't feel comfortable using a torch anywhere near the engine.

I gently used 2 screwdrivers. A puller would work too.

Make sure you turn it around before reinstallation

I got a screwdriver red hot and bent the last 3/4" in a vise.

Same here. Pry simultaneously, 180 degrees apart. My spacer wasn't all that tight, but it had to come off straight or it would bind.

It is fast and elegant, and I own one.

If you can find one (NLA through most suppliers) buy it.

Thanks, Roy, will it work with the radiator still in place?

As mentioned, pricey.

EDIT:
Anyone know the thread pitch of the harmonic balancer?

I disagree, the price is just few dollars over half of what mine cost.

Yes, I have used it the radiator still in place.

The pulley screws are special (single use) torque to yield screws, don't use aftermarket.

Appreciate your continuing, knowledgeable input.

Good to hear I'm not paying too much!

Leaving the radiator in place saves much time, good to hear about that too.

I'll have to get some new bolts, when they arrive, I can measure the pitch.
