Hard to figure out what is in the photo, but you'll probably need access to a bearing puller. Wasn't there a nut on the end of it? What pulley is it?

Ok its the harmonic balencer your talking about, you need a harmonic balencer pully to get it off the end of the crank shaft.

They are a friction fit, spray a pit of inox in the centre the day before you try pulling it off it will help it come off more easy.

cheers

get a gear/balancer puller, about $15 from supercheap, you place the three bolts in the three threaded holes in the balancer pulley and the threaded centre bolt that locates into the centre of the pulley needs to be tightened to pull the balancer off...

if you had trouble workin that out, wait till you get to the two philips head screws that hold the cam retaining plate in, you'll need an impact driver to remove them, if you snap em then it'll be fun and games with a bolt extractor. I recommend getting a can of liquid spanner and give them a squirt every 4-5 hours and another squirt before leaving it overnight before any attempt at removing them.

as for the rest of it, just follow your nose, oil pump + dizzy have to come off and lifters removed before you can slide the cam out... good luck, theyre a good motor to learn on....

No longer a Commodore
I can't believe it took 8 posts before someone was even able to identify it as a harmonic balancer!

This is a worry :|
