yeah my crank pulley holder tool is braced on the pavement. At first I had a 3/8 inch craftsman 19mm socket on there with a 3/8 to 1/2 converter and I flowered the socket out. I was like damn, no more dinky stuff so I went out and bought a 19mm 1/2 socket and here I am. My dad has an impact gun at work he is going to bring home tonight, I'll let you know

well, impact gun=no. railed on it with an electric impact gun for about 4 minutes. Railed on it again with the breaker bar again and did this.

Get a half inch impact gun (500+ ftlb) that runs off of a compressor, no electric ****.

If you don't have access to that and the motor is in running condition, drive to
the nearest automotive shop and have them knock it loose with their power tools.

Then have them tighten it up, but not too snug, then drive it very slowly and carefully home and then take another shot at it.

BTW: Damaging bearings from a good impact gun is a new one to me.
I guess it could be possibile

Please use impact sockets for this, your going to keep snaping those SS sockets and extensions.

If you have a schucks, kragen or checkers around you they rent impact sockets like that out. I had to borrow a socket from them once. I brought it back the same day and they didn't even charge me for it. I am sure other car parts stores do too, but that is the only one around me that has anything metric

Use an air impact wrench. We got the bolt off with no trouble at all on my friend's car (92 S). I don't really see any other way to do it and not go through the same **** your going through.

Good luck with whatever it is you need to do.

in order to get that off you need to avoid extensions if at all possible ...its just another connection you dont need ...

you might need some heat ..and a good impact gun with a 1/2 19mm impact socket with no extensions....

ss sockets are not going to change the fact that the extension is still 1/2. Where the extensions are failing has nothing to do with the size of the socket......I'm renting a 1000 lb air impact gun tonight and I'm going to ******* obliterate that bolt

trust me the extension will take away a lot of torque...im just saying to maximize all the power you have you need impact to socket to bolt

haha...if you guys plan on using a 3/4'' impact gun your gonna need a 1/2'' air line and about 180psi of pressure...

Take it to a shop and have them do it...

get a good breaker bar at least 1/2" i prefer 3/4" but what ever, now forget about the extention that is a prob rite their, get yourself a deep socket to fit.and a good one at that no true value shiz, now what you need to do is get a strap wrench wrap around the pulley and wedge to floor. now put a lever on the breaker bar and put your strength into it but maKE SURE YOU ARE STRAIGHT ON THE bolt start off with 4 foot lever and work your way up till it comes off if this dont work sell it

i dotn think leverage is the problem ....

if he seems to have a problem breaking tools i think its due to the long extensions ..

i knwo with a good impact and a 19mm deep socket will take it off

**** YEAH BITCHES!!! the BOLT IS OFF!!!!

1000 lb impact gun did'nt work for 5 minutes


Ended up torching the bolt and then
had to get some 3/4" extensions and a 3/4" breakers bar and a different pipe. Although when it broke loose it was like an explosion, this is what you call an abnormaly tight bolt .. hey and it only cost me about 200$ to remove

60$ to rent air impact gun and compressor
20$ to rent electric impact gun
80$ morosso holder tool
40$ assorted socket stuff


Anyways thanks for all your guys help!

Default Re: crank pulley bolt. Clockwise or counterclockwise (reverse thread)???

I read the comments here because I too had a difficult time removing the crank pulley bolt. What finally worked for me was two 1/2 inch breaker bars from Harbor Frieght. They have an extra long one for $13.99, so I got that and bought a 19mm impact socket from Home Depot for $4.99. The socket is a Deep well 8 side, because I did not want to round off the crank bolt. I had The Odyssey on ramps, so the trick was to place the one breaker with the special Honda tool over the steering linkage. This means you won’t have to hold it and allows you to use both Hands on the other breaker bar. Then the trick was to put my foot against the wheel well and with both hands pull on the breaker bar with the 19mm impact socket as hard as you can. After it breaks loose, it unscrews easily. And yes, it is a standard clockwise thread, so make sure you pull counter clockwise to unscrew.

For what it's worth, whoever put mine together last used a ton of red loctite on not just the bolt, but the inner diameter of the pulley and the balance shaft drive gear and the timing belt gear as well. Fun. My 1,200 ft*lb impact gun wouldn't break it loose, even going over pressure by a fair bit.

This is what saved the day for me (a few days later):


The one on the left is Lisle part number 77080, about $25 on Amazon. It's specially designed to weigh a metric ton and increase the effectiveness of the impact gun's internal hammer(s). I spent several bursts trying to get the bolt off with my 1,200 ft*lb air gun, including some with 10-20% more air pressure than rated. I waited a few days, got this socket in hand, and it came off in about 15 seconds at the normal rated air pressure. I can't believe I didn't buy this about 15-20 crankshaft bolts ago.
