OK, I can't get the useless, not sure why it's there as it never touches the TB little idler assembly off from under the crank. Meaning I can't pull the crank TB sprocket and the back TB cover off to replace the crank seal. %^&&%%$$#. I've marinated it in PB Blaster, WD 40 and the like. It's not budging.....and yes I have removed the circlips.

Any Ideas?

Haven't done it in a while, would a 3 armed puller work? They are usually inexpensive, just gentle steady pressure.

Here is what I did.
It has to come off straight and I can not stress that enough.
Gently get in behind with a dent puller

I don't like to use a heal bar because you can crack or chip aluminum

It amazed me how it would not come until I got a hook on it and then it fell off.

Go figure

I don't have the radiator out, not that it would take long, because of the Auto trans lines. But even then, there is room to get a dent puller in there? How much do those cost?

You can only get one arm on and not sure about anchoring the other two while I pull.

Probably not unless you pull the condenser too, I would think.

One arm might work as well as the dent puller option.

Have you tried beating on it a bit with a rubber hammer. It might help with stress if nothing else.

I did a google search on "crank pulley removal" and there are many thoughts out there...

I didn't like the one where you use the starter..... but there was one suggestion on using a strap removal tool (as used for oil filters) and another on using the 3 arm puller by grabbing the inside lip of a crank pulley. Of course they aren't 982 specific, but it looks like a variety of (just) possible solutions to consider, depending on what tools you have available.

Me neither, but people do it all the time. I guess if one was really careful about it and had a helper on hand to watch the pulley closely, perhaps it would be alright since he is limited with his tool inventory.

I just keep thinking interference motor, but I guess if the timing belt is still in place and in good shape, it can only go so wrong....

I would not risk it. (the starter thing, its back yard, opps f78ked it)
Go to your local cheep tool place and buy a 2 foot flat screw driver.
Set it behind one roller at a time and give the screw driver a twist. It should move each side a little bit at a time. don't force it or it will bind.

Don't even want to know what the starter thing is. Besides, the flywheel lock is on. I'll go looking at mini pry bars tomorrow and see if I can find something to get behind it,
