If the bolt is not rounded off you can use a blow tourch to heat the bolt up and what i used time and time again is a crayon of course your gonna have to choose the color but simpley heat up the bolt and rub the crayon around the head of the bolt then have your tool ready it should come right out.

Got what I believe are the correct bolts but starter seems to be stuck.

You are correct, you have 2 bolts to remove, one on starter side and one on transmission bell housing side, With the battery disconnected put a socket on the crank pulley use a breaker bar and turn the engine forward a little bit to see if you can break the starter loose that way, it almost sounds like the starter is stuck in the engaged position on the flywheel, so by moving the engine a little bit from the crank side might help the starter disengage from the flywheel. DO NOT use a hammer or crow bar, you will only end up breaking the transmission housing then it'll get really expensive.

How do i remove the timing belt pulley on a mazda 323 200e 8v FE engine please

The timing belt pulley is held on by the Centre crankshaft bolt and slides on with a key way. You may need to use a puller if it is stuck tight.

Removing harmonic balancer

First, you have to loosen the crank pulley center bolt. Best way is with an impact gun-bolt is very tight. If you have to use a breaker bar to loosen the bolt, you will have to devise a way to hold the crankshaft from turning backward while loosening it. One method is to remove the starter and wedge a piece of wood against the flywheel, preventing it from turning, while you are loosening the center bolt.
From the beginning: raise and block the side of car that the front of engine is towards. Remove the wheel and the inner fender splash shield. Remove the belts. Remove negative battery terminal, remove starter. Wedge the flywheel so it won't turn backward. Loosen and remove the center bolt. Some harmonic balancers will slide right off the crankshaft now, some are on very tight, if you can't wiggle it, tap it, and get it to move, then buy an inexpensive harmonic balancer removal puller, just a few bucks, easy to use, will save balancer from trying to hammer it off. All you need is enough room to mount up the puller to the balancer, and get the balancer moving off the crank.
Some engine lay outs there isn't enough room: then you really have to get creative, either lowering engine enough to get to pulley, or raising engine out. But most engines are positioned where the crank pulley can come off easily, with enough room to get the puller on.
The pulley may have a woodruff key in a slot on the crankshaft, and a corresponding notch on the pulley, for proper positioning of the pulley to crank. Don't lose the woodruff key.

Ho to replace Harmonic Balancer/Crank Pulley

the pulley will be either pressed on or bolted on
if pressed on you will need a harmonic balancer puller to get it off and space to swing a hammer to put it back on
if bolted it will be torqued to up to 90ftlb so holding the crank to undo the nut is a problem so get a 1/2 " impact gun for the job
you will need space for the tools so look at what has to be removed first
next there is a crankshaft position sensor behind the pulley so be careful with wires in that area
some engines have the pulley bolted to a crank hub with 3 or 4 small bolts in which case the job gets simpler
the item to watch out for is the drive key in the crank shaft as it can fall out of place and fall inside the seal especially when refitting the balancer

How do i fix my mitsubishi fto water pump

Remove the bolt for the crank pulley. Use a gear puller the remove the pulley. If you don't have an impact gun, you have to remove the starter . So you can hold the flywheel/crank shaft from moving as you remove the bolt.

Harmonic balance pulley traveles 180 degrees and makes a knocking noise center bolton crank does not rotate when this is moved by hand , whats up? 1995 buick park ave.

The outer ring should not move independently of the inner pat of the pulley. If it does the rubber isolator in between the two parts is bad and the pulley will need to be replaced. The pulleys are common to fail and you can usually get them from your local parts store or a gm dealer. The center bolt should be a 15/16" . You may need an impact wrench to remove. There will be a couple of threaded holes in the pulley. You will need a pulled and bolts to remove the pulley. A steering wheel pulled works really good for this and you can find the bolts at your local hardware store. I'm pretty sure they are 6mm holes but I do not remember the thread pitch. It's a pretty simple job and the worst part will be getting the crank bolt loose.

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!
