1989 Eagle Premier crankshaft pully removal

So far, using an 18 inch torque wrench to pull on and a breakdown bar hooked to a chain wrench to grab the pulley, I have not been able to remove the bolt. The shop manual says it's threadlocked and not to use an impact wrench on it. I would have to pull a lot of things out anyway in order to get in impact in there. Has anyone found a definite way to remove that pulley? I want to replace my front crankshaft seal in the timing cover. I have the seal, just need to get that pulley off.

Thanks in advance

    Getting three-quarter inch drive tools is quite out of the way pricewise, and since the car is an automatic, I can't lock the motor as instructed. I still need to lock it with a chain wrench. It looks like I still need to try something else.

  • philkb Oct 20, 2008

    Putting it in gear still won't lock the motor. There is no solid connection between the motor and xmission, only the torque converter, and that will not lock in without the engine running. The shop manual only lists a method that would require the engine being out of the car. Some of my friends and myself included, are now wondering if the threads are left-hand but we can't quite tell by trying to look at the threads on the shaft itself. The manual does not say one way or other. Now, one of those friends is thinking that the big oil leak is somewhere other that the crankshaft seal. There is a lot of oil in the "valley" too. I'm wondering if it's a head gasket or manifold gasket.

Well the first thing is to forget what the manual says you need a threequrter air ratchet to take off the locker nut not a impact wrench. Put a block under the weels then put it in gear this well put presher on the flexplate and ceep the moter from turing over then take off the nut now you will need to go by the book when puting back togather.I would put a beed of hightem seller then put your seal in and let set for atleast 24 to 36 hours for best seal you can get.well I hope this will help good luck on your project.

The band motor of the time record broke down

The 1999 Daewoo Leganza has two engines: the 2.0L and the 2.2L. The procedure for changing the belt is the same for both engines. The manufacturer recommends changing the timing belt every 72,000 miles, as both engines are interference engines. If the belt stretches so far that the tensioner cannot take up the slack, or if the belt breaks, the valves will most likely hit the pistons, causing extensive engine damage. No special tools are needed to change the timing belt.
Difficulty: Challenging
Things You'll Need:

  • Set of wrenches
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Set of sockets
  • Lug wrench
  • 2-by-4-inch board (6 inches long)
  • Torque wrench
  1. 1 Disconnect the negative battery cable using the appropriate wrench. Lay the cable aside, making sure you don't let it touch metal. Raise the front of the Leganza with the floor jack, then support it with jack stands. Remove the floor jack.
  2. 2 Disconnect the intake air temperature sensor by unplugging the wiring harness. The intake air temperature sensor is on the air intake near the air filter. Disconnect the breather hose and the air intake (air filter hose). Remove the air cleaner housing and air cleaner. Use the set of sockets and wrenches to remove all items.
  3. 3 Remove the right front wheel using the lug wrench. Remove the right front fender inner splashguard. Remove tension from the accessory belt tensioner using a wrench, then remove the accessory drive belt. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolts using the appropriate size sockets, then pull the pulley off.
  4. 4 Place the 2-by-4-inch board on the floor jack. Slide the jack under the oil pan and jack it up enough to touch the oil pan or the bellhousing on the transmission, to support the engine. Remove the right engine mount bracket. Remove the power steering hose bracket and the bolt using the appropriate size socket. Remove the timing belt cover using the appropriate socket.
  5. 5 Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise using the appropriate socket. Do so until the crankshaft timing mark lines up with the notch at the 6 o'clock position, and the dots on both camshaft sprockets line up with the timing marks at the 12 o'clock position on the head. Each camshaft sprocket has two marks. The sprockets are interchangeable. When facing the engine, the left camshaft sprocket needs to match the "Intake" mark, and the right camshaft sprocket needs to match the "Exhaust" mark.
  6. 6 Loosen the timing belt tensioner bolt. Turn the tensioner away from the belt (clockwise), then tighten the bolt to hold the tensioner out of the way. Remove the timing belt.
  7. 7 Check that the timing marks are still perfectly aligned. Install the timing belt starting at the crankshaft pulley. Work your way counterclockwise around the top of the tensioner, the outside edge of the water pump, the inside edge of the idler, the outside of both camshafts and the inside of the right idler, keeping the belt tight on the nontensioned side.
  8. 8 Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt. Turn the tensioner counterclockwise using a wrench until the pointer on the tensioner is aligned with the notch on the block. Tighten the tensioner bolt to 18 foot-pounds of torque.
  9. 9 Turn the crankshaft counterclockwise (slowly) for two turns until the timing marks are lined up again, as shown in Step 5. Check the tensioner pointer to see that it is still aligned. If not, repeat steps 8 and 9.
  10. 10 Install the rest of the parts in reverse order of removal. Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolts to 15 foot-pounds of torque.

How to install timing belt on 1998 vw beetle

Things You'll Need: · Set of quarter-inch drive sockets Quarter-inch drive ratchet Set of half-inch drive sockets Half-inch drive air gun Set of metric wrenches Special tools for holding camshaft timing #2065-A and injection pump #2064

Step 1

Remove the accessory drive belts and the accessory drive belt tensioner. Remove the upper timing belt cover and the valve cover. Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the No.1 cylinder is atop, dead center, with the flywheel timing marks aligned.

Step 2

Install the special tool setting bar (#2065-A) on the rear of the camshaft. If it does not fit, turn the crankshaft once more and line up the timing marks again in the hole of the transmission housing.

Step 3

Insert locking pin #2064 into the injection pump to hold it in position. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolts, the crankshaft pulley and the lower timing belt cover. Loosen the tensioner pulley nut and allow the tensioner to move away from the belt. Loosely tighten the nut to hold the tensioner out of the way. Remove the top guide pulley and the timing belt.

Step 4

Make sure that the timing mark on the flywheel is lined up and that the camshaft setting bar and injection locking pin are in place. Loosen the camshaft bolt a half turn and tap the sprocket with a soft mallet to loosen it off its taper. The sprocket should move freely. Install the top guide pulley and torque to 18 foot pounds of torque.

Step 5

Install the new timing belt, starting on the right side and working counterclockwise. Keep the tension on the right nontensioned side. Loosen the tensioner pulley nut. Using the two-pin wrench, turn the tensioner pulley clockwise until the notch and raised mark are aligned. Torque the tensioner pulley nut to 15 foot pounds of torque. Make sure the flywheel timing mark is still aligned.

Step 6

Torque the camshaft bolt to 33 foot pounds of torque. Remove the locking pin from the injection pump and remove the camshaft setting bar. Turn the crankshaft two turns and check the alignment on the flywheel. Make sure that the setting bar can be inserted easily and that the injection pump locking pin can be inserted. Install all components in reverse order of removal and torque the crankshaft bolt to 18 foot pounds of torque.

My Recommendation - Pay an authorized VW mechanic $500 to replace the timing belt water pump an tensioner, and sleep better knowing that the job was done right. Just too many places for a novice car mechanic to screw up. jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
