Removing stuck crank sprocket 2.2 legacy
Posted 21 October 2005 - 12:44 PM
What wound up removing the sprocket was to purchase an M8 X 1.25 tap and big handle, a couple of M8 X 1.25 grade 8 bolts and a couple flat washers. The crank sprocket has a circle of holes around it, and two of them are slightly larger in diameter than the others, and they are opposed in direction across the crankshaft. The tap very easily cut into these holes, and then using the cast iron tensioner assembly from the air conditioner belt and placing it across the end of the crankshaft I put the two bolts into the sprocket and started tightening them which pulled the sprocket off the shaft. It would go so far, and then I had to use a socket inbetween the "bracket" and the crank to finally get it off.
Anyway, thought I'd post that tip, I'm off to finish things up including a new water pump and replacing the oil pump O ring and crank seal. Found the search on what type of sealant to use on the water pump gasket (none is fine by me!) here in the forum. Thanks and wish me luck!

If the thin coating of anti-sieze I applied to my crank snout the last time I had the pulley off doesn't keep it from welding itself back on, the tap'll be the first thing I try.
