Default Bolt size for puller?

I am attempting to remove the crankshaft pulley to get at the timing chain cover. I have a puller, but don't know what size bolts to use with it to remove the pulley. Does anyone know what size bolts I need to use with the puller?

I have a 1998 ranger with the stock 4.0 V-6.

You don't need a puller. Just tap the pulley as you pull on it with a ball peen hammer. You might have to loosen it a little first by tapping all around it first.

I was able to remove mine from the old junk engine with 183,000 miles on it and the one from the junk yard with 83,000 miles on it with no problems.
