Am I turning front pulley in correct direction?!?
Posted 26 July 2003 - 07:10 AM
I pulled the breaker bar toward the passenger side of the car, but the bolt wouldn't loosen. The transmission was in 5th, and my wife was in the car standing on the brake pedal. She said I was moving the whole car. Is the bolt reverse threaded?
I soaked the bolt with Liquid Wrench and we went out for dinner and to the store. A couple hours later we came back and again tried to loosen the bolt, but had the same result.
Before quitting for the night I again soaked the bolt with Liquid Wrench, and this morning I am heading out to buy a chain wrench to hold the pulley while I try to loosen the bolt.
Am I turning the bolt in the correct direction?
Would using a torch to apply heat to the bolt help (without damaging anything)?
Any other ideas?

The bolt is a right hand thread. I do know that.

Now here's the problem. The pulley is being stubborn and won't come off. I did a little leveraging behind it with screwdrivers, but still no go (I had to stop because I'm committed to making an appearance at my nephew's 8th birthday party. Thankfully my wife also has a Subaru that I can use to get there.).
Any other suggestions on getting that pulley off?
