    Hi. Does anyone know how to remove a vibration damper. After removing the screws, it seems that a pulley is needed. Damper does not come off by pulling it by hand. Does anyone know what type of pulley is needed? links or pictures are appreciated. thanks. phpThumb_generated_thumbnail.jpg

    Its probably just frozen/rusted on. I dont see any holes or access for pulling.

    The ISX 15 is super stubborn coming off and takes alot of air hammer vibration and prying to come apart. The pulley is hard but the balancer is worse. Wire wheel the pilot on the crank and penetrating oil.

    you are right. It was fixed in place hard. I did not want to hit it with a hammer, so I soaked it in wd40 and left it for a few hours and it did come off. Several gentle pulls from left and right and slowly made it out. thanks!
