It is not reverse threaded. Just go counter-clockwise to loosen. "Lefty loosey, righty tighty"

Use a hex crank holder tool and get a good breaker bar. That should be able to break it out. Another option is to use an impact wrench, although there has been many arguments about it being bad for the bearings or something of that nature. I myself don't really believe that, but if it bothers ya just go with the tradition breaker bar.

I wouldn't use a breakerbar, it tends to try and strip the bolt head cause you are putting so much force on it. The best is to you use the crank pulley holder as said before and if you can't get one just use a big big big impact and it should spin off without a problem.

This newer H22A series, as opposed to the older H22A series motors from the mid to early 90's, have large crank pulley bolts that are a huge pain in the *** to take off.

I purchased the snap-on crank holder tool for $60.00 and then used good breaker bar with a 4 ft pipe, while Joon525 was standing on the holder side.

I'm 6ft 1, 235lbs, and rather strong.... and it was STILL difficult to get that f'er off!

It's a two man operation unless you can find one of those 1000 ft/lb impact guns.

If you can get the car on a lift and get a LONG extention, you're in better shape.

Also, most of the breaker bars out there will flex something feirce. You're probably better off with a heavy duty ratchet (1/2 at least) and a deep 19mm (I think it 19mm) impact socket to eliminate any slack.

Spray some PB Blaster on the bolt and wait 5 mins. Lock the crank pulley with a pulley holder. Brace yourself with the cross beam running across the top of the engine bay and stand on the breaker bar and apply force. Works everytime for me.

the nut is on there so tight I don't understand how penetrating oil could possibly seap into the bolt and loosen it up, especialy when the actual threads are in about 1/2 an inch from where the bolt meets the pulley. I've put an insane amount of pressure on this pulley bolt. Enough to break a 1/2" drive extension. oh btw my crank pulley is being locked with a morosso crank pulley holder tool.

LOL
What extension is that anyways to break like that?

Use a normal 1/2inch wrench with normal 19mm Socket. Find a Hollow Long Steel Pipe and just get that ****** loose. Thats my ghetto breaker bar, has saved my *** many a times. I swear theres nothing it cant get loose.

It is a proto extension, proto is as good if not better than snap-on.

I use a 4 foot long hollow pipe attached to a breaker bar with 2 proto extensions and a 6 sided 1/2 inch drive 19mm socket. All extensions and breaker bar are 1/2 inch drive....

Fcking a man, what kind of compressor do you need for that bad boy?

The problem I had trying to get my pulley off is that I don't have a lift, so it was up on jack stands and I couldn't get enough room under the car to use a breaker bar effectivly. I had a big pipe, but it flexed so much I'd hit the ground with it before it would do anything.

I finally got fed up with it (and not having any airtools) I drove it down the street to a garage and they loosened it with a impact gun, I tightned it up some and drove really slow back home to take it off.

let me just say, holy ******* ****. I've seen so many of these crank pulley bolt threads but this one takes the cake. most of the time people are just not pushing hard enough, but your extension snapped like it was made in china. I use extensions intended for use with an impact wrench. you could give that a try

I have been told not to use an impact gun on the crank pulley bolt (not good for bearings), but in this case I would say do whatever you have to do. 1000lb impact gun would be cool to have anyway.

Mine took a crank pulley tool braced on the pavement below, 3/4" drive tools, 8 feet of leverage, and 200 pounds of me hanging on the end of it . . . .

Good times.
