Does anybody have experience removing this part. The replacement part is basically a 1 piece assembly that consists of the pulley and a long shaft that screws into the harmonic balancer. The piece that I'm trying to get off is an extension from the harmonic balancer that has an out pulley pressed on to it with a bearing and then an inner pulley that screws onto the shaft that is slotted. The problem I have is when I try to remove the entire thing, only the inner pulley comes off and not with the extension shaft.... I'm left with just a threaded shaft and can't get the impact wrench on it to take the rest of it off. My thought was to weld on a nut after I get the inner pulley off and then take it the rest of the way off, but I didn't want to attempt something permanent if somebody had this figured out.

Solution:

I spun the pulley off leaving just the threads. I applied LocTite to the threads and then spun the pulley back on. The next day I took the impact wrench to it hard and the whole assembly came off.
