Thumbs down HELP - Rotor Puller?

Uncle! I am completely lost as to what tool I should be using to pull the alternator rotor. Baffled the guys at NAPA (tho' that's pretty easy), and then baffled my mechanic. He let me borrow what was essentially a flywheel puller, but the clamps wouldn't fit behind the rotor (not enough room).

Can somebody help? Am I looking for what would essentially be a flywheel puller, or am I missing something altogether?

I thought someone posted a pic of the rotor puller here, but darned if I can find it.
I'm pretty sure it looked something like the one below.
The large nut looking piece screws into the rotor, then the bolt is turned down into the nut, bottoming out and forcing the rotor up and off the tapered shaft.

That's the one !!!
Guess I was a little mistaken on how I though it came off.

18mm or 16mm? Someone on the Yahoo group said, "16mm x 1.5mm (pitch?)". I suppose I can use my calipers and measure the ID.

So, that's really it? Get a bolt that fits the ID of the rotor, screw it in, and as it screws in, the rotor comes off the shaft? Dag, I'm making this harder than it has to be.

Thanks, folks, I'll see what I can find in the a.m. and post progress from there!

Oh, and Hyper, i think yours does exactly the same thing - nut screws into the ID of the rotor; then torque down the screw and it should pull the rotor off the shaft...I think? Anyway, the folks on the Yahoo group found this item on eBay (190117802147), which looks like the one Jon noted; and then there was a discussion about something that sounded like what Hyper posted. I just "bought it now" 'cause I can see myself spending all weekend looking for a 18mm 1.5mm right-hand threaded bolt.

THANKS, folks!

You won't find a bolt that size with those treads, believe me, I looked. But that is exactly how it works. I used an impact wrench with my puller but the penny between the rotor and balancer gear should work.

Thanks, then I won't even think about going back to Napa today...ha ha. They'll be happy not to see me.

The one I bought on eBay is 18 x 1.5, so hopefully that's it. I was waiting to place an order with Ayers until I could pull the rotor and see what the dampers on the balancer looked like, but maybe I'll just go ahead and order them (if they're affordable).
