No i dont think so but what i used to do was use the starter motor with my big snap on bar wedged in but do not do this as the crank may not have a keyway and its only held tight by the pulley and if you attempt it the old way you will crunch the valves ,now there is a special tool that fits to a starter motor bolt after taking it out and it looks like a ringear in reverse .Now if you dont have one of these then what i do is look for a hole in the bellhousing showing the timing mark and then i jam it up with a big old screwdriver in the ringear if i cannot get into the ring gear then i drill a 3/8th hole in the bellhousing to line up with the ring gear and then put my screwdriver in their and get willing assistant on the big bar with a tube on the end ,same as tighteneing it up i put a jack on the end of the extension bar then assistant can pull it up to at least 120lbs and the jack takes the strain of the turning motion ,failure to di it this tight will result in it coming loose on the motorway and the valves going bang and maybe a piston as well

Need a diagram to replace the crank pulley on a 1990 Oldsmobile regency 98 3.8 liter


This is what I found on the 98 Regency instructions: Crankshaft Damper REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the belts from the crankshaft pulley.
  3. Remove the crankshaft damper attaching bolt.
  4. Attach a suitable puller to the damper and remove the damper from the crankshaft. NOTE: On certain models, removal of the cooling fan, fan shroud or radiator may be necessary for clearance. WARNING
    DO NOT pry on the damper assembly to remove it from the vehicle or component damage will result. Remove the damper using a puller only.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the damper bolt to specification. Fig. 1: One example of a crankshaft damper puller tool 85843074.gif
    Fig. 2: Removing the crankshaft damper bolt 85843193.jpg Fig. 3: Do not attempt to pry on the damper to remove it from the crankshaft, use a puller only 85843194.jpg Fig. 4: Removing the damper from the crankshaft 85843195.jpg Fig. 5: When installing the damper, thread the bolt by hand first to prevent cross-threading 85843196.jpg prev.gif next.gif
