Question about 1991 Honda Civic
Ok, so I've tried all the solutions posted on here, and the crankshaft pulley bolt won't break. How about heating the bolt red hot. Will this cause serious problems other than possibly melting the old timing belt? After all, changing the belt is the whole reason for this anyway...
Ok it seen that u having problems to break loose u crank shast pulley bolt if u don't have the proper tools to get it loose, I will suggest to do this but you goin to be carefull how to do it. Get a good side breaker bar with the sucket that fit in the bolt connect the battery back is possible that you have everything disconected but go head and install the battery cable back, with the braker bar find a spot to put the breaker bar agians too. Have somebody to go inside of the car to just try to bump the engine wich mean with the ignition switch try to start the car make sure u have the breaker bar set up to the left not to right possition(lefty loosy and righty tighty) and it will break loose

lock a pair of vise grips to your flywheel.then rotate the engine till the vise grips are snug against the block and tranny.if u dont have a high torque impact gun you can use a half inch breakover bar with about a 6ft cheater bar.apply steady pressure until bolt breaks lose.the reason why the crank bolt is so tight is that every time you start the car it tightens the bolt.

yes standard right hand thread,the easiest way is with a very powerful air gun with an impact socket,be warned have had to use an 1 inch drive lorry gun to undo these bolts as have a compression washer under the bolt head,Good luck,

this one has the engine on the other side so you cant use the starter motor with a big bar wedged in the chassis just like honda 4wd whatever its called,so last one i done i removed the starter motor and put a crowbar onto the ringear and held it whilst a friend who just happened to be passing pulled on the bar

For your information my friend,Honda it doesn't matter what make is it,always the Crankshaft bolt is too hard to manage loosing it.Reason- the manufacturer is using quite lock tight on the bolt threads. On my behalf what I do when I have this situation. I take the car to my tire fitter who has the strongest air gun and request for assistance - after I remove all the covers underneath to give him good access - when bolt gets loose,I tight the bolt with an ordinary air gun just to get to my workshop and carry on.
