How to remove a harmonic balancer on a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Asked by Oct 05, 2016 at 10:16 PM about the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am wanting to remove and install the harmonic balancer on a 1998 Jeep
Grand Cherokee, my question is how hard of a task is it on a scale of 1-10
with 10 being rocket science ha. I know that a puller and installer tool is
required just don't know the other, and its the the other that has me worried
and hesitant. Do you have to re time the engine or anything with the timing? I
seen that the crankshaft has a keyhole slot on it so I wouldn't think that re
timing would be needed but let me know. Thanks and any help will be greatly
appreciated!

really its easy find ,borrow rent a puller.. it only goes on 1 way...you can also get an installer or tap it back on with a small piece of wood and a good hammer >www.vidaxl.com/p/210275/harmonic-balance-puller-set-45-pcs? gclid=CjwKEAjwydK_BRDK34GenvLB61YSJACZ8da3Tb4Ue8JZB 0tHzNH8UXBE4SgXu5yhB8ypBmnXvITksxoCvUbw

Ok would you happen to know what all you would have to do to get to it, I'm assuming take off the fan and fan shroud and maybe the bumper, but what about the radiator? And is there anything you have to do as far as the timing goes? Thanks a lot!
