Per the official product thread:

I added the ano because I know most of these will actually end up on street cars, daily drivers in some cases.

To remove use claw type puller.
Ok so i got my damper today, unfortunately i dont have the cash at the moment to get the installer. But from reading the statement above it sounds like the installer just holds the pulley still while you torque down the crank bolt? My engine is out, So cant i just use my flywheel holder tool to hold the flywheel while i torque the bolt? the crank bolt is pressing the pulley on correct? Also is there any where online i can order the crank bolt and key? part numbers would be appreciated!

Mine got delivered at the office today. After paying another ~$100 in taxes of course.

One question, what's with the ******* bolts for the timing wheel? I have a set of both metric and imperial allen keys, but neither a 3mm or a 2/32nd fit What sort of oddball size is this?

I'd tell you if I remembered.....I just grabbed a few out of my impact set and tried until one fit. I know they were really snug all lined up, I hope I dont ever have to take them off.
