We couldnt get ours off with literally anything , due to some japanese mechanic deciding to lace the Crank Pulley bolt with fking thread lock ... on a 60+ pound bolt for gods sake lol.

Broke a few bar's , 1 windy gun & decided off the shelf wasnt gonna do it. So went ahead with welding a thick ass rod to a large nut which fit snugly into the hex so it jams against the chassis rail.

Then weld a socket on a 2 meter long length of thick gauge tube.

2 folk sitting on the end = job done. What a carry on though :(

Sounds a good idea but the problem is that i havent really got the equipment to make anything like that.

Is there any form of tool that can be bought for cheap to solve this as i don't really want ot spend near

jeees....

jack up the side a bit, put it in 5th gear and get someone to plant their foot on the brake. whilst you give the 19mm bolt a good crack with a decent 1/3" or 3/4" socket and bar.

or try and start the engine with the bar in, that will soon crack it as well

Just drive to a garage and chuck them a tenner to whip it off with a windy gun.

If you don't fancy that, I've used a set of stillsons to hold the pulley before. It all depends on how tight the bolt was done last time.

I shattered both my 19mm sockets like this :(

weird never had a problem with the sockets - just a standard 19mm deep hex from halfords.

my one actually snapped whilst trying to undo a wheel nut on a crv!

I done my cam belt a while ago. Tryed everything as didn't wana be as ghetto as sticking a crow bar into the fly but thats what I ended up having to do. It came off quite easily then. We did snap a 1/2 drive in the process though!!!

So take off the starter, wang a crow bar or the biggest screw driver you can get your hands on, wedge it either into the flywheel teeth or the raised bits on the clutch. Get a mate to put all of their weight on that and then undo to crank pully.
