Harmonic Balancer Replacement help

I just recently found out that a squeaking noise in my car was the harmonic balancer pulley had slipped bad. Now it's so far back that I can't even keep a belt on there because it wants to slip off everytime. I contacted some shops and they wanted a pretty nice chunk of change to replace it so I was wondering if it would be easier to just do it myself?

Don't keep driving it. If something breaks off its gonna get inside the motor and then your screwed. Mine went on my car. The mechanic told me its pretty common. They only charged me 150 bucks. Unless your mechanically inclined you shouldn't do it. Take a look at a video first on you tube on how to do it

Go rent or buy a pulley installer. Pretty easy job, hour or two.

I noticed a wobbly harmonic balancer. There is a little bit of rubber sticking out of the edge also. In order to replace it looks like you need alot of special tools, maybe a special long puller. Can anyone confirm exactly what is needed? or has anyone bought the new pulley and had a mechanic install it?

Is this true? From what I have read I need the following:

OTC Crankshaft Vibration Damper Remover (303-101) T74P-6316-A
OTC Crankshaft Vibration Damper Installer Ford (303-102) T74P-6316-B
OTC Crankshaft Vibration Damper Remover (303-773)
303-D055 Harmonic Balancer Strap Wrench D85L-6000-A
Crankshaft Pulley Harmonic Balancer Bolt F5RZ-6A340-B

and of course the pulley itself...

Are you saying this can be done with just the new pulley and the installer (part 303-102)? I have read that most standard pullers don't work because they don't have a long enough bolt.
