Default Crankshaft bolt -removing. Is this reverse thread?

Working in the garage.

Need to remove the crankshaft bolt. I tried heating the bolt and using a 550lb impact. I even tried with a crankshaft pulley holder tool...I cant seem to get that bolt off.

Ideas?

no, it's no reverse threaded.

don't heat the bolt either, that expands the bolt making it harder to get out.

have you tried the way I did it in my write-up? I just recently did this on my Civic and it worked great again.

Funnny TouringAccord, I just told my brother how much you have helped me in three years. We both admire your dedication to helping people.

Yeah, I tried your way, but I think cuz I am using a 3 food bar instead of using the 5' foot cheater bar. I will run to Home Depot and get a steel pipe to go around this Harbor tool pry bar. I will also have to get the extension from the pry bar to the bolt since mine composes of three extensions connected to each other.

Where did you get the extension that long?

My bro flew from Texas just to help me with this bolt....the Civic I did two years ago just came off like butter, this one is giving me a hard time.

haha Click the image to open in full size. I'm glad I can help

yeah, the long cheater pipe is definitely helpful.

I bought my extension at Sears, Craftsman Click the image to open in full size. It's a 20" 1/2 drive extension.

I think I'd have to agree that the Civic bolt is easier, I didn't have to lean on the bar quite as much with this one. The loud "POP" when the bolt broke those was the same though Click the image to open in full size.

Touring, it was one loud POP! Got it

Went to Sears and got the 20 in 1/2 extension. With the 1/2 " ratchet, harbor freight breaker bar attached to the pulley holding tool, I gave it all my strenth and it finallt popped. I got a six foot 1" galvanized pipe from Home Depot to put into the ratchet...gosh, I was so happy. I spent 2 hours running around LA getting parts. YOu have it right...this is all cheater bar. 5Foot makes a big difference.

Need one more favor, you paypal email. I want to send you a little something for all the years you have helped me learn.

haha, lol. I appreciate the offer but it's definitely not required or something I would feel right taking. But thanks Click the image to open in full size.

yes, it's a loud pop. This last one I did in the garage so the pop seemed that much louder and my mom snapped her head around the corner cause she thought something happened Click the image to open in full size.

Glad to hear you got it loose.

I actually just loaned my pulley holding tool to a local HT member (rhdune16) because he was helping a friend by swapping a H22 into their Accord and doing a timing belt job for them but didn't have the tool. He called me up and asked if I knew where to get one locally and I told him nowhere, believe me I searched when I was looking for one, so I let him borrow mine. I've met him a couple other time so I didn't make him give me a deposit or anything even though he offered.
