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.
kelhawk1: If you use the starter bump technique make absolutely certain that the breaker handle is square with the socket.
Bukake Sake: Got r' did. Used a 3/8 extension to lock keep the pulley from moving. After I quit bending screw drivers, and used the extension the bolt came out pretty easy. My battery didn't have enough juice for the starter trick, and my impact driver was too big to fit in front of the engine. Thanks a lot WheeliePete! Oh yeah, I drove almost 2,000 miles with a broken chain guide, and my bolts that hold the guide against the block were shaven down quite a bit. Tomorrow I have to figure out how to get one of them out.
Bukake Sake: Pain in my ass.
Kyle Widman: Great video, however when I went to take mine off on my 20r, it was already gone! Haha. So I'm mainly looking at this for re-torquing cause it's been some years since I did this on my 22r. Now I need a new bolt and woodruff... Thankfully the crank, and pulley keyways weren't damaged.
sleekitwan: You have a great, warm, delivery demeanour, makes it easy to listen to. Some people are plain hard on the senses. The assortment of methods is useful - otherwise I have to buy a special toblerone-shaped thing with a slot up towards one apex, and teeth in it about 4, occupying the flat opposite this apex. I have never bought the same car twice (keep them too long) so it's not just the irritating cost, it's the ordering-in time and waiting for the thing, and every cambelt kit says these toblerone bits are optional - way bad since I only find that out now I got the wife's Renault in bits...!
TheBeautifulme1985: The impact gun I brought didnot help me none I had to put my back into it get someone to jam the breaks and put that impact socket on that breaker bar and a heavy 3 foot pole and it will break my arms are stronger than any impact gun and put your weight on it to
TheBeautifulme1985: I broke my crank pulley bolt useing a 1 2 inch rachet and 17mm impact socket and a 3 feet heavy pole
TheBeautifulme1985: What I did for my honda crank pulley bolt was got a new 17mm impact socket and a 3 feet heavy pole and put my weight and my strong arms in it and broke that bolt loose in 2 mins spray it down with w d 40 if you keep puting your weight on it dont worry it will break soon hope this help someone
ryann2k1: the crankshaft pulley of my car mitsubishi magna 1999 is a bit different, nothing i can insert per your video to hold the pulley from moving. i cannot crank the car anymore as I have taken apart the fuel rail, the intake manifold and the distributor. any other idea to loosen the crankshaft pulley bolt without using impact gun tool?
Daren Sefcik: Awesome...! The drift method worked perfect and it did not damage my dust cover...thanks so much..!!
John Northrup: I want to say thank you Pete! I bought an expensive 20v Lithium Impact gun for this job and many others. Long story short, the gun had 0 effect on that bolt, lol! (~350ft-lbs tq) So I had recalled your video, and was saved by a Dodge exhaust stud with the nut still on. (I miss you Shelby Daytona!) Using torch heat and your jam method, it's off now, with only slight bending of the dust cover. Now moving on to removing the VC and timing cover, carefully.
ToyotaLandCruiser: Heat from a torch if u got one is sorta the same as the last one good tricks thanks
Louden Swain: Thanks for the help. I tried to bump the starter and that was a no go, so I resorted to the wedge method. My '84 has the larger holes in the balancer. A 1/2" drive extension bar that was 5" long worked great for a wedge. I also removed the battery which gave me more room. It allowed me to hang from the 4 foot long cheater bar. Trying to break it loose from underneath the truck I just couldn't get enough leverage.
Tony Cha: What about near 1000 ft lbs of torque. My Lexus is about there. So hard to find 3/4 sockets in stores. Got a 1000 ft lbs impact wrench didn't work was leaking so I got a new one about to try again. Tap it, pb blast soaked it, broke a 1/2 drive breaker bar and a 3/4 to 1/2 impact adapter to use a 22mm 1/2 socket. Broke a chain wrench. Crank bolt from hell. Idiot previous mechanic must have use weld tite instead of lock tite and used a 1400 ft lbs impact to tighten it.
ethrty320i: watched this video for a crank bolt on Toyora 2E engine, really didnt want to use the starter bump method, but decided to in the end, and definately helped loosen it up. and its off now, I dont have an impact/rattle gun so thanks
Alexis Betancourt: Tks good video
coltcomphbar: Why could you not just use the bolt you welded the socket? It would just stick out a little. Nut it wouldn't hurt anything
Josellyn Moreno: Very detailed videos.
WheeliePete: Ahh, good deal. Amazing how expanding the metal with some heat can give it just the little bit it needs to finally break loose.
