I have not had trouble installing the pulley/harmonic damper on a 4 cylinder. It is a moderate push on fit. No wailing needed. if it is harder going on check for damage on the crank surface and dress it back down to the surface using emery cloth.

Hi everyone,

                  Thanks to those who helped me with my puller question. In the end I made a new tool out of angle iron and 3/8 -16 rod. I ran a BSW 3/8 -16 die on the end to match the bearing caps. It worked the treat and the caps came out with the minor expected effort.  The engine is apart and going to the machine shop soon. The owner and I plan to install a pro- harmonic damper when building up the motor. Unless the Denis Welch steel crank has internal threads how have people installed the new damper on the crank. Searching  videos I see people wailing on the damper with hammers to force it onto the crank nose. This cannot be good for the thrust washers and not how I plan to install it:(
