I had a tough time with this not having a powerful enough impact wrench. I ended up taking a tie-down strap wrapped around the pulley with the ends secured to the frame and just cinched it down tight until the pully could no longer move. I also extended my breaker bar with a 3' pipe to get leverage. Crude, but effective for a bolt torqued at 174 ft-lbs.

    Should have added a disclaimer -- That much torque means it's easy to break the bolt off. Not fun to try to get that out if it breaks so take care and go slow and steady. This procedure should not involve a hammer!

Is the harmonic balancer on a 1992 acura legend tapered


No, it is not. Acura, and Honda Harmonic balancers, (the crank pulley), come off fairly easily once unbolted. Sometimes you have to pry on them a little, but I've never had any difficulty removing them.

How do i fix my mitsubishi fto water pump


Remove the bolt for the crank pulley. Use a gear puller the remove the pulley. If you don't have an impact gun, you have to remove the starter . So you can hold the flywheel/crank shaft from moving as you remove the bolt.

I have this 89 acura legend 2.7l v6 timing belt removed and the water pump removed, the old pump failed which caused the belt to fail, i have new parts and the pump installed only i dont understand to...


Hi, here is what you need to do. Get all of the timing marks lined up as indicated in the picture below. Put the belt on. Without moving the gears off their marks, make the belt tight across the cam gears and then down the right side to the crank gear. All of the slack must be on the left side to be taken up by the tensioner. Release the tensioner to tighten the belt and then verify the marks are still aligned. If the marks are not aligned, loosen the tensioner just enough to turn the gear that needs to be realigned. After tensioning the belt, rotate the crankshaft clockwise 720 degrees and recheck the timing marks. I have pasted the book procedure below. Please let me know if you still have questions. You must get this right.

  1. If the crankshaft or camshafts have been turned with the timing belt removed, remove the spark plugs and advance the crankshaft about 15 degrees beyond TDC of No. 1 cylinder. Make sure the camshaft sprockets are properly aligned with the marks and return the crankshaft to the TDC mark.
  2. Install the belt in sequence on the crankshaft, the front camshaft, water pump and tensioner pulleys, then the rear camshaft.
  3. To adjust the tension, loosen the tensioner pulley bolt about 1 / 2 turn. The spring will automatically set the proper tension. Torque the bolt to 31 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  4. Rotate the crankshaft 6 turns clockwise and check that the timing marks on the crankshaft and camshafts align properly. Adjust the timing belt tension again by rotating the crankshaft to the align the blue mark on the pulley with the pointer. Loosen and retorque the tensioner pulley bolt.
  5. Install the remaining parts in reverse order. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 83 ft. lbs. (115 Nm). When installing the side mount bracket, torque the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (55 Nm).

How do i replace a water pump on a 1994 mazda protege


1.u need to jack the car up so u can take the passenger tire off. align the crank timing mark to top dead center with the front timing belt cover. 2. u need to loosen the crank bolt with am impact wrench, or secure the flywheel and lossen the crank bolt .3. u need a 10mm short 1/4 inch socket/or wrench inch to loosen the (4) water pump nuts. 4. i now recommend u loosen the alternator, u do not need to remove it. 5. if u have air-conditioning..i suggest u leave it on. remove the belt 6. powersteering can be loosened as well, 7. once u remove the crank pulley..u can take the 10 mm blots out of the timing belt/water pump covers.u will also need to support the engine(under the oli pan is ok) and remove the upper passenger side motor mount. 8. u will now see the timing belt. u need to remove it by loosening the tension pulley (14 mmm bolt) .u should make sure the crank is tdc. but u just need to make sure that when u re-install the new timing belt(whichu better do when u do a water pump)...,make sure the exhaust and intake cam shaft pulleys are aligned.(exhaust pulley is front side of car, intake is rear.)(e-for exhaust,i -for intake....they're aligned at center of each other (center of engine)now i must take a pee,brb in a minute. remove timing belt now 9. remove (5) 12 mm bolts from water pump. clean surface. 10. re-install in complete reverse order.i do recommend u use a black rtv gasket sealer on ur water pump gasket.(screw manufacturers statements on this use). tart with taking your two belts off, remove motor mount, remove power steering pump, crank pulley,next remove timing belt covers along with tensioners. Remove valve cover. timing belt tensioner, now you have access to the water pump. remember your timing marks before you remove. When installing timing belt hold camshaffts with vise grips to align. installation opposite of removal.
