I suppose I can whack these things and break them. Any easy suggestions? Radiators not coming out, I just want them gone incase I have an issue on the road.

Removing timing covers without pulling pulley
Posted 31 July 2014 - 09:46 PM
I used a dremel rotary tool to cut the center cover in half and remove it from around the pulley, and it can still be re attached in 2 parts without removing the pulley.
Or just take off the pulley, there is a hole in the flywheel you can put a punch in to hold the crank still (a bit more difficult on an automatic just jam something in there), and use a breaker bar on the pulley, no need to remove the rad.

I've done a bunch just not without removing pulley.....and I didnt want to remove the pulley just for this. Too hot to have ambition.

Well that was about a 3 on the fun-o-meter. Took all the bolts off and whacked it in half and got them out.

Yep, just bash it to pieces until it's all out. Good job!
