Need a shop to remove my crank pully bolt.

Heya peeps, I have been working on my soarer the last few days. Im in the middle of doing the 100k stuff, i.e. timing belt. I cleared away all the crap and got to the crank pully but for the life of me I cant get the lil bastard to let loose. So I am wondering if anyone knows of a shop in Nanaimo that may be willing to remove the bolt and instal my new purple hks timing belt. Any recomendations??

Go to a tool rental place and get a 600ft/lb impact gun and compressor. It'll get it off.

if it's anything like the one on my 7M, you will need something like HCR32 suggested. Ryan (nashman) brought over his big impact gun and had the bolt off in 5 seconds flat. I couldn't get it off with a big breaker bar or my small impact gun.

Agreed. A lot of those JDM imported cars (like skylines) have a torque spec of over 300 ft/lbs for the crank bolt. Taking an old one off can easily need a 600+ ft/lb impact gun.

considering the amount of skyline timing belts ive done, prior to having my compressor around, you dont need a large impact gun to bust the crank pulleys loose. a good breaker bar and quality impact sockets will get the job done

Quality sockets is the key here. I have several broken sockets from doing things like this.

Use some he-man strength.

Seriously, I broke mine myself - LOTS of penetrating lube, big half inch drive breaker bar, a good socket, and some strength.

PS - I'm not a big guy either :P

1) Crank pulley bolt -> socket -> pry bar -> wedge to ground (check direction of rotation)

2) bump starter (and duck)

3) hope you didn't screw up (wrong direction)

4) See bolt loose (of the aftermath of pry bar sent flying into sheet metal)

Or borrow someone's $85 impact wrench. It'll probably pull it off on setting 2 (out of 4).

LOL I have tried what u are getting at, and after about 25 tries Im too scared to tear some teeth off of my fly wheel. Im going to try and find a place that will rent me a comp and impact gun in Nanaimo. I have also used a 3/4inc breaker bar with craftsman sockets and it still wont budge, and Im pullin so hard my driver side shock is compressing. haha

Thanks for all the info!!

Just putting this out there: sometime crank bolts have reverse threads. Not saying this is the case here, but I have been burned on this before.
