91 Honda civic/ the easist way to remove crankeshaft pully nut

I need to remove the crankshaft pully from a 1991 Honda civic. I can remove the pully itself easy enough but first I need to figure out how the heck to get the nut off. I have tried somewhat by putting a bolt through the pully itself and turning it till it stopped (on the oil pan lip) but I was scared I was going to damage the pan if I torqued to much on it. I am hoping that I don't have to go and buy a speciel tool for a one time job. And am hoping that someone can shed some light on how to go about it. It is a automatic also if that matters any.
Thanks, D

Hi first off plz dont go buy that over priced tool!!!!! go down to your local parts store and buy u a hand held blow torch I know sounds crazy but just trust me just replaced a water pump on one i bought my fiance for $450. heat the bolt for about 5 mins or the time it takes to smoke a cig. the take a 17mm 6 sided socket and a breaker bar on it with a good side pipe on the end i used a 4 foot pipe so u can get some torque start slowly applying pressure so u dont snap off the head of bolt. if you snap the socket no big deal everyone now days has lifetime warranty but this way will take it off and not cost you a ton of money. if you need me to explain furthur just email me at

My 94 honda civic crankshaft snaped off because someone spotwelded the bolt on the pully and the pully fell off due to the crankshaft breaking how do i replace the crankshaft

Motor has to come out and be disassembled. Pull engine, drop oil pan, undo main bearing cap, rod bearings, undo connecting rods and slide crank out. Unless you have tools (and lots of them including engine hoist, you ought to have a reputable shop do the work.

Need to know the steps on how to set the timming on a 1991 hona civic

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram and Tensioner location for your specific 1.5L or 1.6L Engine and options (AC/No AC etc.).
It also has the directional diagrams on how to rotate the Adjustment Bolts on both the Alternator and Power Steering to loosen the belts, inorder to both remove and reinstall the belts.
Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Timing: Belt and Mark Diagrams for your 1991 Honda Civic. Plus additional Instructional and Directional Diagrams.

I would also strongly suggest purchasing either a Haynes or Chilton Manual, available at most auto parts stores. It has specific information you will need incuding the Torque Specifications for each and every Bolt and Nut you will be removing. Cost is $20-$25 fo the manuals.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!
