HELP PLEASE harmonic balancer won't budge

2001 5.9. I have a harmonic balancer puller from Mac on the crank and a tool holding the flywheel so it won't turn. The radiator is out. I have a piece of plywood between the condesnor and engine so if it snaps off it won't destroy the condensor.

I've cranked on the puller as hard as l dare -pretty hard using a cheater bar on a 1/2 breaker bar - and the harmonic balancer won't budge. (all 4 bolts are out) l've never had a balancer not budge. Has anyone heard of this problem???

l'm pulling out what hair l have left!!!

Please help.

Thank you
