Ranger 2.3 timing belt change

I'm replacing the timing belt on a 95 Ranger, 4cyl 5spd. It looks like I have to take the harmonic balancer/crank pulley off to get the timing belt off. The inner timing belt cover has an extension that extends into the pulley. The balancer has a dished center piece with no holes for a puller. I checked Alldata but couldn't find any info.

Anyone do this job before?

How do I get it off or is there a way to get the belt off withoout pulling the balancer?

Re: Ranger 2.3 timing belt change

If anyone looks at this for info here's what I found. This balancer has very little interference with the crank snout. A three jaw puller is fine for taking it off. I always heard "never use the wrong puller" on balancers but those were extremely tight. This one is just a little too much to do by hand.
