SOURCE: How can I stop the crankshaft from turning so I

The easiest way is to remove the inspection cover at the rear of the engine where the transmission bolts on and slide a screw driver or chisel in the teeth of the ring gear and let it come up on the block. You may need a helper to hold it unless you can find a way to keep it in place while you torque. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: harmonic balancer pully bolt will not loosen

Hi,Try some pb-blaster bolt remover(you can get it at any automotive parts store,auto-zone and will have to sit awhile) but if it will still not break loose you will have to either use a impact wrench or heat it up with a plumbers propane bottle torch and remove it that way...good luck

SOURCE: 92 Park Avenue, I need help replacing the harmonic

About all you can do is brace your ratchet and socket against the frame of the car, or even against a block of wood, and turn the key just a touch, to turn the engine over. You'll have to be careful of the engine rotation direction.

What size &; threads are the 3 holes in 2001 buick lesabre 3.8 harmonic balancer?


You could either have a balancer with 6x100 or 8mm125 thread. But, past experience has taught my that you may need to drill out the holes and tap to next size up.

How to install balance drive gear on crankshaft 2007 Camry 2.4


Remove old crankshaft pulley ( Harmonic Balancer), by putting sturdy socket,think its 19mm, or 3/4 " on the center crankshaft bolt, with a good size breaker bar, wedge the breaker bar in between the suspension, and drive axle, to keep the breaker bar from spinning, while, you now turn the key inside the car, to engage starter, to spin the crankshaft,which may take several attempts, of turning the key, and putting socket back on, they are very stubborn,to break the center bolt loose,
Then remove harmonic balancer, with a PULLER, which requires 2 bolts, in the threaded holes, one on each side of the now empty center bolt hole, autozone , advance, has these to loan out, only requires deposit, which they give back to you, when you return it.
Put square key in slot on bare crankshaft, slide harmonic balancer,(crankshaft pulley,while lining up the square key,and tighten crankshaft bolt.

Harmonic balancer removal


Hello:

I have removed several of the harmonic balancer bolts, and it is difficult to hold the harmonic balancer from spinning when you remove the bolt. The bolt is normal thread, and removal is counterclockwise. There is a Honda holding tool you can get, or possibly borrow from a autoparts store. I always use either an impact wrench or a long breaker bar, and hold the harmonic balancer from rotating with a chain style wrench. I use an old belt to keep from damaging the damper pulley.
Good luck!

Harmonic balancer bolt on 2001 impala


Looking at the front of the engine, the harmonic balancer turns clockwise when running. You will need to turn the bolt anti clockwise as it is a normal right hand thread.

How do you remove the harmonic balancer on a 1987 GMC R3500 with a 454?


You remove the giant bolt, then you use a harmonic balancer puller, which essentially bolts up rather than using claws to grab. The bolts of the puller go into the pulley fastening bolt holes.

Something must happen to protect the crank threads, a spacer, using the retainer bolt, or whatever, just do not kill the threads.
