Try some Loctite on the threads:

The blue allows disassembly with common hand tools.
The red usually needs impact tools to undo.

Available at auto parts stores.

The crankshaft sprocket (for the primary chain) on Harley's use the red to secure the nut, as this is something you don't want coming loose on ya.

Keep breaking bolts on my front motor mount 95 electra glide. Replaced the mount withing 1000 miles

it could be the problem and it could be that you need a harder tensile bolt ,if you undo all the bolts on the engine mounts it could be that the motor is not sitting right in the frame .if you keep getting the problem you might need to get the frame checked cheers pete

Removing a harmonic balancer

Most balancers will wiggle off (pull & wiggle) you will need the big centre bolt undone & if 4 small bolts around balancer undo those to cause they are probably bolted to the crank gear.

Noisy waterpump on vs commadore how to replace

Easy fix. Loosen the 10mm bolts on water pump pulley. Remove drive belt by using 15mm spanner on tensioner( draw the belt before removing, makes it easier to refit). Depending where u do it just undo the water pump bolts and let coolant drain. Remove pump, can sometimes need a knock to come off. Clean gasket surface and fit new pump with a little sealant and refit pulley and belt and tighten pulley bolts with belt on. It is easier to do without the fan in but that's optional. Should take a qualified mechanic about 45 mins to an hour, so expect around 2 hours for a novice. From memory maybe undo the power steering pulley (4 ten mm bolts) when the belt is on and take that off to, might be a bolt behind it. Hope this helps

Is the crankshaft pulley bolt left or right thread to undo diesel P38 engine

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

The shear key on the crankshaft timing gear keeps shearing. first time it bent valves.put a new motor in(30,000 miles) drove a few weeks. key shesred .I cut grove in crank so I could put a long key in it...

the crankshaft bolt may not be torqued correctly or for some reason inst "pinching" the balancer/gear tight enough to prevent the hammering effect that breaks the key.
