Removing harmonic balancer pully need help

Okay here gos our issue, working on a 2000 chrysler cirus, changing out water pump and timing belt. So okay we know how to do that and where it is only problem we have is getting the harmonic balancer pully off to get to it all any suggestions on how or what to do. We have a pully puller, with j hooks. What was susposed to be a day job has turned in to a weeks night mare.

1) Use a balancer puller
2) The puller needed isn't a Jaw Puller rather it looks like a Peace Sign and has 3 or 4 bolts that go thru it and screw into the balancer where the pully is bolted. Then the center bolt screws down to the crankshaft and is pressed/pulled off. Intallation has a long threaded bolt with a nut and washer that threads into the end of the crankshaft. Tighten the nut and watch as the balancer is pressed on.
3) You can borrow one for free from Auto Zone, give them a deposit & get your deposit back when you return it. I'll bet the guys at Auto Zone will tell you how to use it, not hard to do
