Why do you want to remove the crank pully pin? Anyway, to remove this pin, you need to remove the pully first. afterward, you can use a pair of vice-grips to twist the pin out. However, not advisable. You should leave the pin there as it helps stabilize the crank pully & keeps it from turning on the crankshaft.

You need to enter what engine etc deisel there is a little hole in the cam wheel which line up to a hole in the head same on the fuel pump and behind the starter motor there is a hole which lined up with a hole in the flywheel always turn the engine clockwise from the crank and always pin and mark pulleys. If I remember the crank pulley floats for about a tooth or so. Pin the crank first make sure it don't move the pin the rest . Petrol the same for the cam and crank but I don't think the crank floats at all so u can mark it

2004 Pilot timing belt replacement

(for the 105,000 mile timing belt service)

Part List :
-Timing belt: 14400-P8A-A02
-Adjuster automatic (hydraulic tensioner): 14520-P8E-A01
-Adjuster - timing belt: 14510-PGE-A01
-Idler pulley - timing belt: 14550-P8A-A01 (OR) 14550-PGE-A01 (there are 2 numbers listed)
-Alternator/Compressor belt: 38920-P8F-A02
-Power steering belt: 56992-P8A-A01
-O-RING (8.8X1.9): 91302-GE0-000
-Fender trip clips (X7): 91501-S04-003

Special Tools Needed:
Honda Crankshaft Pulley Removal Tool
3/4" breaker bar

-Remove tire and place the Pilot on a jack stand.

-Remove the clips holding the fender liner and lower splash shield in place (x7) and fold them out of the way.

-Make sure the #1 piston is on top dead center using the marks on the crank pulley and lower timing belt cover (19mm in the crank pulley).

-Remove the Alternator-Compressor belt (14mm boxend) & Power Steering belt. (2-12mm and 1-12mm tensioner bolt)

-Loosen the crank pulley. If you have an impact wrench or a long breaker bar it makes it easier to remove the bolt. You will also need a special tool crankshaft pulley holder (50mm) (19mm and special tool).

-Remove the side engine mount bracket (5-14mm bolts).

-Remove the crankshaft pulley.

-Remove the oil dipstick & tube (10mm).

-Remove the front & rear 'upper covers' of the timing belt housing, moving the wire harness out of the way first (5-10mm bolts for each cover).

-Remove the lower cover (7-10mm bolts).

-Remove the engine mount bracket that is bolted to the block (3-14mm bolts).

-Remove the hydraulic tensioner (2-10mm bolts).

-Remove the tensioner pulley (you will reuse the inner sleave) (14mm bolt).

-Remove the idler pulley bolt (14mm bolt with thread locker on it) (I used Loctite 242 during the reinstall because I had it on the shelf).

-Remove the timing belt.

-Before installing a new timing belt, make sure the pulleys, belt guide plate, upper & lower covers are clean and check to see if the crank and cams have rotated (mine did not move).

-The install is the reverse order of removal (make sure you torque everything correctly!)

-The removal of the lock pin in the hydraulic tensioner gave me a little trouble so I used pliers.

-Once the crank pulley is back on, check the lower timing mark (and the cam marks) before the top covers are installed.

How to replace timing belt corolla 1995

A timing belt replacement is a very complex job but can be done and here is how.
first locate the belt, it should be behind a cover on the front of your engine (behind all the other belts)
second and most importantly DON'T CRANK THE ENGINE!!!! ( if you already have cranked it or you suspect the camshaft or crank shaft has moved then you will need to find top dead center or TDC I will explain this a little later).

step 1
jack the car up and support with jack stands (for transverse mounted FWD engines remove the passenger wheel and access cover)

step 2
remove serpentine belt and any accessory items in the way (I.E. power steering pump, A/C.) and remove the timing belt cover

step 3
remove timing belt tensioner, and idler pulleys as well as the belt itself.

step 4
align crankshaft and cam shaft. removal of crankshaft pulley may be necessary. remove #1 spark plug and plug hole with finger , have assistant rotate crankshaft until pressure is felt on finger. once you find this align the arrows on the crankshaft pulley and engine block.
for the camshaft pulley just rotate it to align with the arrow on the head.

step 5
install new tensioner ( if new tensioner comes equipped with a pin to hold it in the "no tension " position leave it in) and idler pulleys it is always recommended but not always needed to replace all timing belt components. Install new belt and release tensioner pin.

step 6
rotate engine manually 2 full revolutions and ensure that timing marks are still aligned. install #1 spark plug and re-assemble front of engine

Start and pray! Like I said, timing belt replacement is very important to get right. if you got something wrong you will know it immediately.

hope this helps! good luck!

I have done engine overhall for my mazda 6 2003.i want to know how set timing and the timing marks?

there are special tools pin to lock crank in correct position and cams have flat plate that goes across into both at rear of cams small section goes up from memory, the cam gears have no dowel pin/locating pin to camshaft you do bolts up last when all are locked in position and grenade pin (locking)pin in tensioner is removed and chain is tight then hold cams with shifter or spanner(wrench) on cam flats and do up cam gear to camshaft bolts on each cam.
hole in front cover just above crank pulley at 11O clock, blind blanking plug must be removed to put in chain tensioner pin, crank blanking plug on your left side when looking at crank pulley(side of block) remove and locking pin goes into there when at TDC no1. and cams should be in position to lock with plate as described above.may not be any timming marks on chains or gears due to the locking tools needed and relied on for correct position.
good luck if you feel confident.
some Mazda dealerships may lend tools if you ask nicely or know some one.

Where are the marks to put the timer belt in kia sportage 2001 i need to change the timer belt but i do not have manual to put the car in time

Once the belt is removed, turn the crank pulley clockwise until the pin on the crank nut lines up with the notch at the 12 o'clock position just above it. The intake cam needs to be rotated so the "I" on the pulley is at the 12 o'clock position and the exhaust cam needs to be rotated so the "E" on the pulley is at the 12 o'clock position, then install the belt and adjust tension. Use a 1/2" drive ratchet and I think a 21mm socket for the crank pulley and a 17mm wrench for the cam pulleys.

Pulling harmonic balancer pulley from 300gt crank gear that runs timing belt wants to come off with it . I have removed center bolt but cannot get gear loose from pulley. It appears that the end of a pin...

The pin is normal, that is just for alignment. It will stay in the gear when you slide the pulley off.

Spray the crank with penetrating oil where the pulley slides over it and let it sit a while.

Take a hammer and lightly tap around the perimeter, as close to the center as possible. This often helps free up stuck pulleys.

Then using both hands try to walk the pulley off, applying pressure at exact opposite sides of the pulley.

If it still won't give, place the center bolt loosely in the crank (to prevent a pulley landing on your toes) and use two equal length prybars and place them behind the pulley at exact opposite sides and using the frame rail for leverage give even pressure to both sides until it slides free.
Do NOT use extreme force with this method as you can damage the harmonic balancer rubber in the pulley. Just use steady even pressure. It will come off with persistence, they all do :)

How to fit a crank sensor to a 1991 GTO twin turbo thanks

Take off Drivers side wheel, remove plastic inner fenders (two pieces - one has six screws and the other is held in with two 12mm bolts - one is hidden up front behind the first plastic cover you remove). Relieve tension from A/C belt (slacken centre nut on tensioner and then using a 12mm ratchet wrench, crank the tensioner in), relieve tension on power steering belt (loosen both bracket bolts and then remove the outer bolt and slide pump up on the arm), place 22mm deep socket on crankshaft pulley and wedge breaker bar on the frame (to the front of the car) and then crank the engine to break the centre bolt. Relieve tension on Timing belt. Remove the crankshaft pulley and tensioner, the crankshaft sensor is located behind the crankshaft pulley. Installation is the reverse of removal, except you have to make sure you put the timing belt back on exactly where it came off (mark the belt and toothed pulley before you pull the belt off) AND you have to pop the tensioner back on so it has the same tension as when you started (the tensioner pops into itself and is spring loaded, held in place with pin/panel pin/small nail while you're working it. Good luck. If you are lost on this, or are asking this because you aren't handy under the hood, leave it to a garage, you will do major damage to your car if you mess up the timing.
