Crankshaft pulley slipping, cant do timing belt...
Posted 01 January 2006 - 03:31 PM
I am using a strap wrench around the pulley and a 22mm socket and a long cheater bar. The problem is that before I get enough leverage for the bolt to move, the pully's interior starts to spin, while the outer part stays put. It seems like the pully is two pieces. There is a rubbe o-ring between the two. I cant see any way to keep the interor part from spinning.
Has anyone else had this problem? More importantly, does anyone have a solution? Hopefully my description is clear enough. Thanks. Keith

Use something to jam the flywheel or flexplate, whichever you have.

Break the bolt off with the starter trick:
- Put a ratchet on the bolt and put a long metal bar on the ratchet
- Turn it until the bar is touching the ground on the left (driver's) side of the car
- Go inside the car and pop the starter very quickly. Only engage and immediately release it.
That should break the bolt loose and then you will have to get a new crank pulley.
