2.2 crankshaft pulley
Posted 01 January 2010 - 07:15 PM
1995 2.2 legacy and I am changing the timing belt. To remove the crankshaft pulley I had to use the starter method as the outer ring of the pulley would slip. I held the pulley with a chain wrench but the bolted section would just roate the engine. Once remove the pulley outer ring slides around the bolt section of the pulley. Am I right the pulley should be a solid rotating unit? The outer ring should not be moveable around the bolt section of the pulley?
Where is the best place/price to obtain a new pulley?
Is it better to go with an under drive unit as the original unit is expensive where I have looked?
Any sources for a good used crankshaft pulley?
Recommendations are most helpful.
Located in Albemarle NC
Thanks in advance

I'm not a big fan of underdrive pulleys- the Subaru engineers designed the pulley size to provide good charge for the alternator, strong AC and the proper amount of PS boost. An underdrive pulley is probably fine in many cases, but if you do a lot of town driving you might be disappointed with the performance of your pulley driven accessories.
You could also get a new pulley from the various online subaru OEM wholesalers.

A used pulley is cheap and easy to find. $20 is a fair price for one. I have piles of them if you need one. Any EJ engine pulley will fit any other EJ engine.
I've used the under drive pulleys and they work fine with no issues.

New OEM style(not underdrive aluminum) ones are available on EBAY for about 80 bucks. As noted ANY EJ crank pulley will work so find the cheapest new one you can.
