Steeda pulleys

Just got some steeda pulleys on eBay. I was wondering if I needed anything for install? Like pulley puller or anything else. I want to be prepared for when they get here. Thanks for advice.

Think the hardest part is taking off the alternator pulley. Need some strength for that, people recommend taking it to a shop and have them use their air compressor tool.

I strongly recommend using a harmonic balancer installer because it means the threads in the cranknose will not be used actively to pull the pulley onto the shaft. Using the installation tool its adapter is threaded fully into the cranknose and it is the installer's threads that are actively loaded to "push" the pulley onto the crankshaft.

It also helps keep the pulley aligned squarely, and only costs a lousy $13...

Ill let u use bolt but pulley installer makes it so much better.

At a point, using the installer bolt, you have to switch to using the real crank bolt--this is not "in-your-face" clear in the instructions. I have read of at least two people that jammed the installer bolt into the crank nose--one broke it off, the other stripped the threads in the crankshaft...

Really...never heard of it...have to look into it as much as I pull harmonic balances off between my truck and car...

That's fine I just need to install mine. I didn't know about the installer but the install bolt is only meant to push the HB in so far (to the point where the factory bolt can grab) then the factory bolt takes it home.

Remember 99-04 has special tightening sequence. Tighten to 66lbs, loosen one full turn, tighten to 37lbs, then tighten additional 90 degrees.

---------- Post added at 04:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:25 PM ----------

Bolt is 12x1.5x60mm or 12x1.5x52.5mm.

Ill look for the bolt for u tho.

FWIW I have never been able to get the full 90°, with never an issue--65° to 70° is about the best I have been able to muster, even with a 24" breaker bar...

I just remembered why I didn't use my bolt. Its wrong thread. My pulleys were advertised wrong (96-01). But there actually 01-04. I only used the crank pulley, since water pump pulleys different.

So I don't know if 96 is fine thread and 01+ is course thread. But my bolt is for 01-04 and course thread. Ill still send it just be careful. Maybe somebody will know if they're different.
