I know this is not an advanced tech ques. but I have to make sure. Which way is it to loosen the crankshaft pulley loose? I know those are usually tightened at about 300lbtq. I might have to rent an impact gun, but want to make sure I'm going the right way first. This fucking bolt is killing me, it's been like 2hrs. now and no budging for this asshole. Thanks for your help. I've been trying to the left which is towards the front of the car on a CRX 89si?

Nah opposite. That bitch is hard as hell to take off. Used a rope to keep the crankshaft pulley from moving.

whoops, i was thinking of crank rotation....bolts are always left loosey, righty tighty :) my bad


yeah the crank pulley is a bitch. one time i saw this tool that is a chain that hooks around and u can latch it down. much much easier than holding it with something else ya know.

Used a bar, and a rope works pretty nice. Just wrap it araound towards the right, and tie the rope to this bar that is near the headlights, took like 10mins. :nod:

at school the table saw is reversed. Some rotating assemblies are like that so the bolt tightens over time.

I use my leg on a wrench to undue things when possible

I usualy use an air wrench to get them off.
