Question about Bending Branches Boating
The crankshaft key that goes between the pulley and the crankshaft busted out ,and bent one side of the crankshaft slot and broke the bolt off is there any way to fix crankshaft slot with out having to have to get a new one?? Also the crankshaft makes a banning noise when i start the engine. please help..
Man my bes advcice is to take the engine dow, cuting a hole on the fender dosent soun very practical. Lowering the engine dow is no big deal anyways.

You will have to drill the bolt out completely. You could first try an extractor set, it will have to be drilled to the size on the extractor set, use a product called PB Blaster and let it soak for a few days reapplying every 12 hours or so. If it broke off you may not be able to get it out with an extractor set but use the biggest extractor that will fit. If you have the head of the bolt and any threads showing you will have to fid a HSS Drill bit a little smaller than the outer diameter of the threads. then carefully drill the bolt out, it will take forever so take your time, I have set up drills with blocks and bungee cords so it will drill itself without you being in atendance, but the drill has to be positioned precisely as to not damage the inside diameter of the threads for when you install the new bolt. I even went so far at times at home to install a video camera to a small tv inside the house so I could monitor if the drill had changed position. I recently had to do exhaust bolts (6) and a spark plug that had rusted and broken off inside the motor, just the threaded portion of the spark plug was all that was there.

It turns left (counterclockwise) to remove. An impact wrench is best if you can get one on it.
If you don't use an impact wrench, you may need to somehow keep the crank from turning when you loosen the bolt.
One way is to pull the belt tighter to put more tension on the crank pulley.
There are other creative ways I've used. If you have any trouble let me know.
