Default I need help on removing my powerbond pulley...

I'm doing heads/cam and this have kept me from going forward. I have a GM pulley puller...

This will not work. The supplied bolts will not bolt on to the pulley.


Please, I need someone here if you have removed a powerbond pulley to show me what pulley puller you used and take pics of it so I can buy one here locally by cross reference.

In addition to this, did you guys used the old crank bolt to pull the pulley off the crank like to have the threaded bolt of the puller pressed against to it?

the powerbond/SLP has a 3 hole threaded bolt pattern you can use that fixed sterring wheel/balancer puller, you just need bolts that thread into the pulley. Most kits don't have the right bolts. I can't think of them right now sure there in a search.

Simple:

-Call SLP and find out the thread pitch on the bolts you need
-Go to your local hardware store
-Pick up 3 bolts w/ specified size SLP in a grade 8 or better
-Pull off pulley
In addition to this, did you guys used the old crank bolt to pull the pulley off the crank like to have the threaded bolt of the puller pressed against to it?
Nooooo!!!

The old bolt is to be removed, and your puller should have came with something that sits against the crank. If it doesn't, use a socket.

I have done a ton like this, it isn't very much force for stationary threads to endure. There is no reason to not do it like this if you dont have the correct adapter.

This is an old thread but in case anyone else should need the info, the PowerBond bolts are 3/8" fine thread (3/8"-24). I'm getting ready to pull mine to replace the front oil seal and wanted to make sure I have the right tools for the job. If you know of a better method feel free to chime in.
