When I did my recent head work I used an impact to remove and install the crank pully and torqued it down later on after putting it in gear. I had no problems and I really question whether an impact would harm it. You really have to sit there wanging away for a long time with an impact to get a lot ot torque on something. By contrast with a breaker bar or torque wrench it is very easy to break things!
