I want to ditch my harmonic balancer metal ring from around the guibo.

I went to drop the drive shaft and found I can't separate it enough near the center support bearing without dropping the exhaust out of the way.

Went to drop the exhaust and have a frozen nut on the manifold end of it.

So, I'm looking for a shortcut to getting that Harm. Bal. metal ring off.

Was thinking leave guibo and driveshaft in place and attempt sawzall o the ring...but am not sure that would work.

Any suggestions?
