Use a impact gun with a few extensions is the easiest solution. I can assure you that trying to loosen it by hand will not work. Be careful, sometimes that bolt on various vehicles has reverse threads.

How do I get the pullies off the crank on a 94 Toyota truck? The engine is getting water in the oil and a mechanic said the water may be coming into the oil inside the timing cover. He said the timing...


Do you have the crank pulley bolt loose? To loosen it, pull the starter and wedge something against the ring gear teeth on the flywheel-I often use a piece of wood in there, although a large screwdriver or prybar would also work. Put a socket on the crank pulley bolt (use a large breaker bar) and loosen it while holding the flywheel stationary. If the pulley wont move off the crank with some tapping on it to move it, then you will have to use a puller to get the pulley off the crank. Use a harmonic balancer pulley puller, or a 2 or 3 armed puller, if the harmonic balancer puller wont work.

Is the big nut holding the fan to the clutch right hand, (right to tighten,left to loosen)? 1993 navajo


You mean standard or reverse thread?
Usually crank nuts are reverse thread in relation to the direction of the pulley.

So if the pulley\engine spins clockwise then the nut is probably going to loosen by spinning it counterclockwise.

Afterall it would do no good to go down the road and have the rotation of the engine spin the nut off of the crank pulley eh?

93 accord timing belt installation


  • Car jack
  • Jack stands
  • Torque wrench
  • Chain wrench
  • 3/8 inch drive ratchet
  • 1/2 inch drive ratchet
  • 10 mm wrench
  • 12 mm wrench
  • 10 mm socket (3/8 inch)
  • 14 mm socket (3/8 inch)
  • 17 mm socket (1/2 inch)
  • 19 mm socket (1/2 inch)
  • Timing belt
  • Balancer belt
  • Bottle of Liquid Paper

  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Using a ½-inch-drive ratchet and the 19 mm socket, turn the center bolt on the crankshaft so that number-one cylinder piston is at top dead center (TDC). You will know you ware at TDC when the mark on the crank is in alignment with the arrow on the timing cover.
  • Disconnect the cruise control connector and remove the cruise control actuator. Loosen the upper mounting bolt with the 14 mm socket. Use a 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut then use a 10 mm socket to loosen the adjuster from the power steering pump and remove the belt.
  • Loosen the upper air conditioner mounting bolt using the 14 mm socket. Use the 12 mm socket to loosen the lower nut and adjusting bolt on the alternator and remove the alternator/AC belt. Remove the valve cover using a 10 mm socket.
  • Place the jack behind the left front wheel where the arrow is located indicating the jack location, and raise the vehicle. Put the jack stand under the subframe behind the jack, then lower the jack. Remove the left front wheel for easy access to the crank pulley. Using a block of wood atop the jack, place the jack under the oil pan and lift with slight pressure to hold the engine in place. Remove the side engine mount using a 17 mm deep socket.
  • Take off the dipstick, pipe tube and upper timing cover using a 10 mm socket.
    Then remove the timing belt adjuster rubber seal without loosening the adjuster nut. Take off the crankshaft pulley bolt. Use the chain wrench to hold the the crankshaft pulley while turning the crankshaft pulley bolt with a 19 mm socket. Use the 10 mm wrench and 10 mm socket to remove the bolts on the lower cover. Remove the lower cover and mark the location of the cam, crank and balancer shaft with Liquid Paper. Remove the balancer shaft belt and timing belt. Install the timing belt and the balancer shaft belt in the reverse order of removing them. During Installation of the crank pulley, coat the threads of the crank pulley bolt with engine oil and tighten it to 159 foot-pounds. Finally, adjust the tension of the power steering and alternator belts as well.

    Trying to loosen the crank shaft polly to change water pump


    Hi,
    You need to remove the bellhousing cover plate and put a screw driver into the flywheel ring gear to lock it from turning.

    If you can get a friend to help you do it because the bolt holding the pulley on is very tight.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks

    I want to change the timeing belt for a 90 honda accord anyone know the time settings


    jack up on stands, remove LF wheel and water shield. disconnect battery, buy a crankshaft pulley holding tool from OTC, swing p.s. reservoir out of the way, remove both accesory belts, front motor mount, valve cover, dipstick and tube, crank pulley, timing belt cover, set engine at TDC #1 (align marks), remove nut on tensioner shaft to loosen both belts, remove the belts and tensioners (replace all), replace water pump NOW, install timing pulley, reinstall spring (use dipstick tube bolt to hold back the timing pulley with the slot in the bracket on the pulley until the belt is installed), install balance shaft belt, pulley and spring, once tensioned rotate engine once and retension by loosening the nut and retightening. Make sure the marks are still lined up, and reinstall everything. New valve cover gasket set with silicone in the corners. fill with coolant and bleed system once finished. it is a good idea to also change all the oil seals while you are in there.

    you can loosen also the nut at the center of the pully. this nut holds the pulley tight. the long bolt that pulls the clamp is just the tensioner but what holds the pulley is the nut at it's center.

    How do you remove the vibration dampener on a 1987 Nissan Pathfinder (6-cyclinder)? This is so I can remove the bottom front timing belt cover to get to the water pump.


    get every thing out of your way that needs to be out of your way. figure a way out to hold the engine in place to get the crank pully bolt off wether it be with manual tranny and someone holding the brakes or if automatic you will need to hold the pully it self with something along the lines of a oil filter wrench like one with a chain that is adjustable this is what i use but you have to be sure not to damage the groves for the belt, a little nic or two will be ok. some cars have special tools to do the holding also. then take the bolt off. it will be tight so use good tools and you may have to use a cheater bar for leverage. and on assembly make sure everything is torqued to specs. the particular vehicle may require light duty lock tight on the pully bolt so check to make sure.
