01' SH crank bolt

Morning all,

About to do a timing belt and balance belt and seals this weekend. Just looking over Jludes list of tasks in the FAQ's. He mentions to have the crank bolt loosened by a shop before beginning. Any reason why I cannot do this myself with my impact or big ass breaker bar at my garage? Is there a particular way to do this? Is it left handed or anything like that?

Thanks

Sid

You'll need a 3/4" drive impact to get it loose- a regular 1/2" drive won't cut it. They're on there TIGHT.

I went out and bought a 3/4" impact from Harbor Freight and was able to get mine loose, but I also have a large compressor and other tools in the shop to use. You won't be able to get it with a breaker bar.

EDIT- let me rephrase that- you won't be able to get it with a breaker bar if you don't have the crank pulley tool to hold it in place.

I assume the old breaker bar against the floor + tapping the starter trick doesn't work due to CCW rotation on our H's?

Using a 40 inch breaker bar and a 24 inch breaker bar and the correct pyuley holder tool, ive never had issues getting these bikts off.

Worst case, lay on ground with two breaker bars,pull on one with hands and push on other with feet, it will go.

I've never had issues breaking them loose using a breaker bar with a jack handle (cheater bar) slid over the top. I also use the Powerbuilt Honda Crank Pulley holder with a breaker bar attached to it and wedged against the floor, a 1/2" extension (which I think is around 16" long), and a jack stand to keep the extension level with the bolt.

Btw, if you're going to be using a pulley holder, it more than likely won't fit between the chassis and the crank pulley. You'll have to unbolt the driver side engine mount and lower the engine down a bit.

The power built pulley holder tool i use fits without needing the moubt loosened. Actually, the frame rail is curved in that area to allow the tool to slide in at an angle.

I have the OTC crank pulley tool and it also fits in without having to undo the mount, but you need to undo it later anyways if your doing the timing belt... and it gives you access to all the seals and such.

For breaking this bolt loose on my jdm engine I ended up having to use a breaker bar and going to ace and getting a 10 foot long piece of steel pipe to slide over the end. I removed my front bumper to get more direct access to the bolt so I could get on it without using extensions then had my wife hold the socket on the bolt head (giggidy) while I jumped on the end of the cheater bar... it finally popped free. I also heated up the pulley around the bolt with a propane torch. I have an ingersol rand 900ft lb breakaway torque impact gun and even when paired with the industrial sized compressor at my work it didn't budge it. Your results may vary though, good luck.

As a side note, on my first engine the bolt came off quite easily with a breaker bar and the end of a jack handle, but the mechanic that did the timing maintenance before was smart and used an anti seize paste on the threads which helped immensely.

I made my own holder with a nut from fastenal welded to bar stock. Worked on one with a breaker bar. The next was at a junk yard I tried a half inch milwaukee electric impact. Nope. Long pipe on a breaker bar twisted the extension and still no love. Not sure what they used. Now have a 850ft lb impact for when i do it in my garage. Will need to replace air fittings with something like milton v type to see full potential. They can get stuck.

Buy a new bolt and chase the threads when you change them.
