Default Getting the Bolt Off the End of the Crankshaft

This one seems to come up often enough in the tech forum that there probably should be a How-To for it. I haven't used all these methods, but others have posted that they have. The bolt is torqued to 159 ftlbs.

DO NOT USE HEAT!!! There are seals there that would be most likely be affected. This is a normal bolt not left hand threads...turn counter clockwise.

Use a long breaker bar with a two foot piece of pipe as a cheater hold the pulley still with a crowbar. I've managed to get one loose this way.

Same as above but with an extention and a piece of wood holding the head of the breaker bar up for leverage.

Five to 10 minutes with an impact wrench. Be sure you are using an impact socket.

Jam the breaker bar into the ground and bump the starter. It does turn the right way to get it off.

Get the pulley held with a crowbar, jam the breaker bar into the ground, and lower the car.

Use a small hydraulic jack against the end of the breaker bar handle

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
