I'm not saying that I'm guaranteeing that putting a little heat on the center of the balancer hub will break it loose.......but.......

I have had this before and just took a 8 oz ballpean hammer and LIGHTLY taped around the balancer will normaly pop right off while having the puller on it with some tension.

Is this an SFI balancer? SFI requires balancers to be press fit and they may require some heat to remove them. I know on the install of mine it said to heat it too 150 degrees and install it, it was still a real tight install even then but we checked the tolerances and they were spot on.
