Default How do I get the crank pulley off w/ motor out of car?(I've searched)

I have my motor out of my car, and I need the crank pulley off. What is the best way of taking it off? I tried the screwdriver in the torque converter wheel, but, that didn't work, just bent the screw driver really bad. Should I get an impact gun? I'm going to call my friend at the subaru dealership to see if he can borrow the tool for me.

In case you were wondering, I'm changing head gaskets.

Impact gun or a chain style wrench to hold the crank pulley.

Looks like I'll be adding an impact wrench to my toolbox!


Edit: called dealership, he told me to go rent a crank shaft pulley puller from autozone, gunna go pick it up in a little while.

I use an impact gun. For the really tough ones, I use a big prybar in the flywheel, and a 2 foot long pipe on a 1/2 drive ratchet.

Just go to autozone, that puller worked amazing. Used it on two other cars since.

Go to perrin's website. Search for the crank pulley. There are instructions there.

best thing ive used is a peice of 1" wide flat steel about 8" long, drilled holes on either side.

one bolt through the steel and the trans bolt hole, and another bolt through the steel to the pressure plate bolt hole on the flywheel.
