The bolt will turn opposite direction of your engines rotation. so if when setting the timing your manual tells you to crank your engine clockwise then you will need to rotate the bolt clockwise to remove it. you will need a huge belt wrench or a reverse socket in order to keep the engine and pulley from moving so you can crack the bolt. if the transmission is not attached to the engine at this point you may be able to use a crowbar to prevent the flywheel from turning and stop engine rotation that way. goodluck

Hi can someone please tell me if the crankshaft pulley bolt on a BMW 2001 318 injection m43 engine is a left hand or right hand thread


It's normal way for undoing easiest way to get a socket on a long bar so it comes down to the ground on one side then flick the engine over but don't start a very good way for loosening the bolt

On a 1996 pontiac sunfire gt with 2.4 l engine is the crankshaft pulley bolt right-handed threads or left handed threads


There's nothing mentioned in the repair section that the bolt is not standard right hand thread. You could check with a GM dealer to make sure.

I have a1993 Geo Storm, 1.6L engine, having problem getting the bolt on the crankshaft pulley loose. Is it a left hand thread or a right hand thread.


The crankshaft pulley bolt loosens by turning Counter-Clockwise. Ensure the pulley is secure from movement so that you can loosen the pulley bolt without turning over the engine. You may need to use breaker bar to loosen the pulley bolt, or at least a large wrench.
