How do I turn the motor of a nissan pathfinder 1996 I think it'sllocked up it was stolen and came back to me low on oil and with a taping sound in the motor put did not loss compression but now won't turn...

You are probably right on your belief it is locked up.
You should be able to turn the crank by using a wrench on the alternator pulley or the water pump pulley.

How do I install Gilmore gears into 304 v8

I think you are talking about a Gilmer drive which is a toothed drive belt. You need the correct kit to suit your motor, then you remove the crank, water pump and alternator pulleys. Theses are then replaced with the alloy Gilmer crank and water pump pulleys. The alternator pulley is steel and all these pulleys are smaller than the stock pulleys. Be prepared to replace the crank and water pump pulleys for they ware out faster than the belts do.

All in one Belt keeps coming off Bottom pulley of motor

Sounds like the crank pulley is damaged. You will have to replace it. There's a bolt in the center that has to be removed and then you will have to get a puller tool to "pull" it off the crankshaft.

Changing a crank sensor on a 3.4l 2003 pontiac grand am

If you need to replace that sensor than yes you need to pull the crank pulley. There are two crank sensors on this vehicle. One behind the crank pulley and on on the back side of the engine in the block. Make sure ou are replacing the correct one.

Replacing the waterpump on a 1992 Isuzu pickup with carbureted, timing BELT 2.3 litre four cylinder engine. Do i need to remove the crankshaft-pulley center bolt to be able to pull the timing belt cover...

pretty safe on this old engine ,put socket and bar on the bottom pulley bolt and crank engine so starter motor cracks the bolt for you ,these older engines have a keyway on the pulley so no problem do not do this on new cars as pulley has no keyway and once the pressure is released the cambelt doesnt move and the valves go clonk

I have this 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0 L and im trying to get the crank pully off. I have used a 30mm socket, with a impact gun to try and get it off but it wont budge. Is there any trick to get this off? Please...

The crank pulley? Is that the large pulley at the bottom of the motor?
Also known as the "harmonic balance"?
Don't pull that one off unless you really have to... it can't be replaced since it is balanced to that particular engine...
If you have to remove it, you must replace it exactly correctly ...

The bolt is a left-hand bolt....
Turn the bolt clockwise to remove....
(not counter-clockwise like typical bolts).

Hope this helps!

Harmonic balancer is going out! do you have to pull the motor ?

No. The balancer can be pulled off from the crank with no problem. It's the main pulley on the engine. It has a big bolt at the center that holds the pulley onto the crank, that bolt needs to come off. Then the pulley (harmonic balancer) can come off.

Where is the crank sensor on a 1994 olds 88?

The crank sensor is located behind the crank pulley. it has to be lined up perfectly when replaced. You will understand when you remove the crank. Check the crank pulley very closely after you pull it off. they are noted for the rubber insulator breaking and then you have to replace the pulley too.

Hope This Helps.

Crank shaft pulley

Not too hard if you have a pulley puller. Remove the belt, remove the crank shaft bolt, pull the crank pulley off, then reinstall in reverse order.
