Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
I must remove the cover on timing chain but I don't know if I turn the big bolt on crank on right way clockwise or on left way!!!
Let me know.Thanks
The bolt holding the pully on the crankshaft is normal thread, so you turn it CCW to remove.
But you will need someone to lock the crankshaft from turning, by putting a bar into the flywheel teeth. If there is no opening, you can make one by taking out the starter.
