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.
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.
