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: how to change the harmonic balancer on a 3.0 toyota truck

The bolt is usually toqued to 150 foot pounds, or in the realm of 200 newton meters. torque and turns opposite engine rotation In your case counter clockwise (unless Toyota put an engine in that rotated counter clockwise- in which case the bolt would come off in a clockwise direction) If you do not have an impact wrench available, with care, locate a breaker bar on the frame rail of the truck with the socket engaged on the bolt and fully seated- bump the starter and it should loosen the bolt. You want to use great care as the wrench may pop off the bolt head with great force. This is why you want to locate the breaker bar carefully, so if it does fly off, damage to tool or truck will be minimal. In short- stand back and keep people away when you do this.

Once loose, remove the bolt and depending what type of puller you have- one that engages the threaded holes on the inner web of the balancer is best, you m ay need to install the bolt without washer to give the puller something to push against. An external jaw type is not going to do anything other than pull the outer ring off the web.

Harmonic balancer bolt thread direction


It will be a normal RH thread but TREMENDOUSLY tight, and maybe with Loctite as well. You should use a powerful rattle gun (impact wrench) to get it off.

How do you set the distributor timing on a s10 4.3l


1st look under the hood, and read the veci label for timing instructions, then take a piece of white chalk or white paint , and mark the line that is on the harmonic balancer, then hook up a timing light to the positive and negative cables on your battery, red for positive, and black for negative, then hook the clip or adapter of the timing light to the # 1 spark plug wire, start vehicle, and loosen bolt at bottom of distributor, and turn the distibutor to where the white mark on the harmonic balancer will line up with the timing marks for that vehichle, be sure to look under the hood to refer by what the manufactures timing is for your S-10, after you have the timing marks lined up, then retighten the bolt at the bottom of the distributor, and then check your timing for accuracy, if the timing moved while you tightened down the distributor, you will have to re loosen the bolt and re adust the timing to it's correctness, sometimes , it helps when you have 2 people to do this, 1 can watch the timing marks and hold the timing light, and the other can loosen, and tighten the bolt , while both is communicating to each other in order to get the timing right.

How do i change the water pump which way does the pulley screw on the harmonic balancer turn in order to loosen the pulley?


You need a harmonic balancer puller to remove the harmonic balancer. Most auto parts stores that offer loaner tools will have one for you to use and they should have directions if you've never used one before. To replace a water pump, first drain your coolant, remove belt, unbolt and remove water pump, scrape old gasket material from block surface. Place your bolts into new pump, slide gaskets over bolts then attach to engine, reverse other steps, make sure to close radiator petcock (drain valve) fill with 50/50 coolant mixture and start your vehicle to make sure gaskets aren't leaking any coolant
