Default Quick Help Needed

Trying to take engine apart but stuck on the timing chain cover, I cant get to the big wheel that drives the belts off which is blocking it. Not sure it looks like it should pull off but it wont budge?

Any help thanks

You often need to use a puller to remove the balancer. And not a typical pulley puller as it will damage the balancer. You need one that will bolt on the front of the balancer where the accessory drive pulley mounts and then has a threaded rod in the middle to push the balancer off.
