Anyone have one of these counter hold tools I need to remove my harmonic balancer and I canít justify $200 on a tool I will most likely only use once. Iím not worried so much about about using it to remove the bolt want to use it to get the correct torque when I replace it.

Anyone know if VM has one for rent ?
