Martin Gettig: 92 Toyota Pickup 4 cyl.. Harmonic Balancer bolt Hell.. First used a pipe wrench to hold the pulley in place, and used a 19mm socket, breaker bar, and ratchet. Both bent the pulley and rounded the bolt. then tried the bump start method with the pipe wrench on the now rounded off bolt, along with bump starting... 19mm bolt is now about a 16mm now after about five attempts. pulled the first pulley off and discovered the inside pulley is forged, so used a 30lbs pipe to beat the pulley into pieces around said bolt, using an angle grinder, sliced a groove in bolt and said pipe and a sledge hammer on just the leading edge of the cut to literally bang the bolt off.
RIP: 2 ratchets 5 sockets 4 knuckles 15 ml blood 3 toes (pipe landed on my foot) 2 pulleys 1 bolt
Prop Paper: what causes that bolt to freazze up so bad ?
on mine it was a 4 week adventure
in the end... a large bolt thur the pulley like you did then 3/4 inch breaker bar... 10 feet of steel pipe as a cheater and 3 really large fat guys hanging off the very end finally broke it free...
everything j tried the bolt just laughed at us... if the 10 foot steel pipe didnt work we where dont to the welding trick then chuck the engine for another after that.
but go what a bwitch of a job that was
NICK Blalock: what do you do if you have broke two half inch drive breaker bars and it still won't budge
Sergio Bullitt: cool video gracias bro
TurboLover2JZGTE: I always feed a small rope through the #1 spark plug hole at bottom dead center, then the rope stops the piston from moving up.
ReAllyNoWay: where did you get your pulley holder from?
moquiti: Nothing is working so far, I split a 3/8" drive breaker bar in half, moved on to 3/8" drill rod, which held, but then my new 19mm socket just split and the bolt hex is now rounded over, all corners. It looks like I'll have to weld a socket onto the bolt flange like you did. Would you recommend a 3/4" drive socket? Impact or regular? Thnx. :(

moquiti: Is there a fuse for the fuel pump that can be pulled, along with the coil wire? It's getting a little wet in here.
lordmatix3: THANKS for this video!! Couldn't get that F'n thing to budge. Got it... using your 3/8 extension method. Never considered doing it that way. Thanks again!
Luis Villanueva: were can I find the torque for all the bolts
worldpeace32: i just used your technic about 30 minutes ago n it worked . i can't thank u enough man, lucky 4 me the pulley was easily removed
reyes18: You might be a redneck if you weld a socket to a crankshaft pulley bolt.
smaqdaddy: Great vid brother!
smaqdaddy: Is like to add another "Ask me how I know"! ALWAYS use a 6-point socket to break a stubborn fastener free! My old man had a slick trick he used, thread a length of cotton rope into a cylinder at BDC (start of compression, valves closed) leaving a manageable bit hanging out. Then turn the bolt until it is compressed by the piston. Break it free and pull out the rope.
pedro rodriguez: hey wheelie are these engine the same ass the one in the phillppine let know thanks
Jonni Collins: Howdy, appreciate the video; found it while searching for a solution to my problem which is... yeah. Anyway my daughter tore up my car and apparently the timing belt ripped in half underneath. The child decided to pull the belt out without doing ANY of the removal steps...broke the timing cover... sheesh. I've got the wheel off and motor mount out (1994 Ford Escort 1.9 liter), etc but I ran into an issue here that I am disabled and trying to do this by myself, as I have no one to help. Of course without the belt and such, it turns the crankshaft. I have tried wedging everything I can find in there without buggering up the teeth, but trying to hold a length of metal and break loose a crankshaft pulley bolt... not so much. I LOVE the starter bump idea and can't believe I didn't think of that but again... in her infinite wisdom, she ran my battery down as well, so not sure I can get enough bump to get it out. I am indeed in a pickle and as this is in my front yard in the dirt and grass and I do not have access to an oxy/acetylene torch, or an impact etc... any ideas for me?
cody rea: Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but the easiest way to break that bolt is to disable your ignition system, put a half inch breaker bar on the bolt and pin it somewhere, then just turn the engine over with the starter. Easiest way to disable your ignition is to pull your coil wire off of your ignition cap.
Pedro Rodriguez: CAN YOU USE THIS TRICK ON STUBBORN BOLT ON HONDA THER HARD 2 GET OFF 2 LET ME KNOW THANKS
cody N: hey i got a question, so i am taking the head off my 22re in my 88 4runner and one head bolt is being a ass, ive been working on it for 3 days. i got it out of the tread but it doesnt want to come up out of the hole, ive tried everything from pry bars to hammers and it wont want to come out.
apmat nlif: WheeliePeete, Hi if you get a harmonic balancer tool with a square end. Next you get 2 long hardened bolts that fit into your harmonic balancer. Remove the center bolt and replace with an extension. that fits into the 19mm socket. The next tool that you will need is a long adjustable wrench which you will put on the square end of the harmonic balancer tool. Use the wrench to hold it on something that is not going to move or break, and then that will immobilize the crankshaft. With a breaker bar you should be able to remove it. Honda actually has a special tool that you use to hold it with a breaker bar that works on the same principal. How do I know, well I have done it many times removing and installing the crankshaft pulley. If I buy a Chinese harmonic balancer with no bolt holes, then I usually remove the dust cover on the transmission and use a hardened screwdriver to immobilize the flywheel. You may not agree, but it works for me.
