Take the belt off first then undo the bolt holding crank balancer on then partially reinstall the bolt without washer then use the puller.

They make a special puller for this one. The pulley actually has a seat in it and the hole that actually passes through is very small. The puller consists of a rod that is inserted into the hole and seats in the bottom of the hole for a place to push. HMAC300's bolt idea may work but it may also damage the threads. I would be careful.
