Hey guys, I'm replacing my water pump...However, I have a quick question before pulling off the Crankshaft Pulley. I am wondering if you need to pull off the Crankshaft Vibration Dampner in order to pull off the pulley? To rent the Harmonic Puller I need to cough up 89.98 :eek:/ I'd rather not if I can just skip pulling the damper :eek:) Let me know if you can.

Also, If I MUST pull off the damper, what's the safest and easiest way to do it. In other words, how do you guys normally mark the relation between the dampner and the pulley?

Thanks! Sorry for the long question

Crankshaft Vibration Dampner? You can buy a crowsfoot puller from autozone or harbor freight etc for 10 or 15 bux or "rent" one from autozone for the sales price and get a full refund upon returning the tool intact. You'll need to buy bolts to match the pulley. Be sure to drain all the coolant and do not get any coolant on the t-belt. Best buy a woodruff key too.

If you live in an area that Autozone exists, you can get a loaner for a credit card charge which will be credited back to your account when you return it. CKS (Shucks, Checkers, Etal) also has the loaner program.
