Subject: Re: Removing crankshaft pulley bolt

Unfortunately I've already tried this approach. I managed to lock the engine with a screwdriver through one of the holes in the flywheel for the clutch plate going through a hole on the top left (from the front) of the engine block. I tried a 6 foot scaffold pole on the end of a 24" bar, but the bar broke! I've also tried jamming the bar against the suspension, letting the car roll down a slope and then snapping the clutch up, but the wheels locked and skidded, no movement on the bolt! I think someone's used some locktite or something on it. My only remaining idea is to use some pipe freezing spray to try to contract the bolt - has anyone tried anything like this before? --== Sent via ==-- ---Share what you know.
