Question: can not get the harmonic balancer bolt loose. What direction are the threads.
Answer #1torque wrench from Stewart's Auto Repair LLC, March 27, 2011, 06:58Master
It is a right handed thread, however they make a special tool to hold the balancer still while loosening the center bolt. that is put on a very high torque. Tool may be available at local auto parts store loaner tool program call them to be sure.

Definitely need a high torque impact gun to get that bolt loose or lots of meat and potatoes applied to the end of a
4 foot breaker bar.
