I'm looking for a heavy duty balancer puller/installer that wont chew up the crank snout or strip the threads of the puller. Any suggestions ?

I've been using a Snap-On for about 25 yrs, never had a problem. It's got a couple different style attachments for the crank snout so nothing touches the threads.

This one has worked for me for years and every other cheap one broke.

If you have to much press fit between the balancer and crank snout getting them on and off is ridiculously hard.

ATI balancers come with a spec sheet and they need to be honed to fit your crank if you're going to do it properly....

I am sure others sell the same tool set as ATI

Mine has never broke, failed, marked up anything.

I usually put a long wrench and pipe on it and wedge it under a bench to hold it from turning freeing up both hands...

Most of the tool trucks will have a good tool set for that job.
It won't be the least in cost, but good stuff and a lifetime warranty.

Early SB Chevys had no bolt and the balancer was just held on there with the press/interference fit....

Used a short 2 lb hammer and a block of wood to put it on in the car....

When the engine got built for racing use drilling a tapping the crank for a bolt was a good idea.....

I heat mine up with a heat gun, put some antiseize on the crank snout, and it usually goes right on fairly easily. When it's time to remove it, the tool just rests against the end of the crank and is not in the threads so nothing can get messed-up.

This tool seems pretty good it comes with the adapters for the Callies Magnum cranks both BB and SB.

Those cranks the threads go back to the front main.

I have the Jegs kit that is shown as an alternative on the link Rich shared. It looks virtually identical to the ATI set my buddy has, but the Jegs kit included a lot more adapters, and cost almost $100 less.
Whatever one you use, keep some of the black Moly-Disulfide Cam Lube grease on hand, (or the black ARP bolt thread lubricant), and use some on the threads of the installer tool, (and when installing, put a thin smear on the crank snout, and in the bore of the damper). It makes a difficult job MUCH easier.

If you happen to need a kick butt puller/ installer this will fit the bill.
I have one and I no longer cringe when the time comes to pull or install a balancer.

Edit: I now see JP Miller already mentioned this one.

Thanks for all of the tips. I mostly use it for pulling the hub off on my procharger. Ive broken two of the basic style 4 ear pullers so Ive been looking for something abit heavier duty than what I had ...
