You need to keep the crank from rotating in order to get the proper torque specs. You will need to use a Honda crank pulley tool to keep the crank from rotating. Or find another way to keep the crank from rotating. I have a crank tool so I'm not sure of the back yard mechanics way of doing this. Someone else will have to chime in.

Most people use an air gun to get it as tight as they can. I torque them on, but outside of the dealer and a few people like me, I've never seen anyone else torque them to proper specs because most people don't have a torque wrench that'll go up to 181 pounds which is the proper spec.

That's why you use a breaker bar, a little math, and stand on it.

If you have an old serpentine belt lyin around you can have a buddy hold it tight around the crank while you torque it.

Hey guys I am trying to find the specs for the torque needed on a 92 acura integra harmonic balancer. If anyone has those numbers, please let me know. I believe its like 130.. but I can't remember, it's been some time. Also, any tips on getting the tensioner bolt loose on the alternator? Can't seem to get an angle to get the socket on the bolt.

It says the proper torque earlier in this thread and autozone and oreilly both rent out the crank holder tool now.

no this thread is about a 98 accord 2.3l.. I'm asking about a 92 integra 1.8l. So no, it's not earlier in this thread. All I need is the torque number on it, I've done this before but I just don't remember how much torque it calls for.
