Those familiar with LS en­gines will of­ten tell you the most frus­trat­ing part in the dis­man­tling process is the re­moval of the harmonic damper. For some, the process con­sumes hours. A slow ta­per is a mighty ef­fec­tive method for lock­ing two com­po­nents. But a new patented tool, the GGT-180 from G & G Tech­nics over­comes the im­ped­i­ments.

By en­gag­ing the puller’s three tangs be­hind the spokes of the damper—no bolts re­quired—and tight­en­ing the jack­ing screw, the damper is swiftly freed from its bond with the crank­shaft. The M-16 threaded jack­ing screw is made from 8.8-grade high ten­sile steel and is op­er­ated by a 24mm socket. The screw ro­tates within the thrust bear­ing; its main pur­pose is to pro­tect the end of the crank. The body of the puller is formed from an in­vest­ment cast­ing of high­t­en­sile steel and hard­ened and tem­pered.
