How Can I Take off Crankshaft Pulley Bolt On 1990 Honda Accord?

1990 Honda Accord LX, 4Dr, AT, 192K miles. Bolt is 19mm (or 3/4"). I used impact wrench (upto 400 ft-lb) with Deep socket and still can't get it off. Is it counter clockwise direction to loose bolt just like other bolts?

Go to Autozone and rent a puller for your Honda any other method can mash the threads on the inside if the crank shaft.

yes it is counter clockwise, but it takes about 450lbs to loosen, then use the proper puller to pull that pulley or risk ruining the crankshaft.

the pulley threads are always loosened clockwise. i had a tough time trying to loosen a nut of Power steering pulley. untill all threads were wiped out. learned it the hard way. try applying the same 400 ft pound torqu clockwise and check it out.

Are you having a problem keeping the engine from turning over as you try to break the bolt loose? You might have to lock the engine up to make this work. I have heard of removing a spark plug and inserting the end of some rope in the cylinder so the piston is prevented from rising.

I am also wondering the thread is reverse so that you loose it clockwise. I checked with Honda dealer and Kragen (without seeing part as they don't have it in stock), they all say it is just like any other bolt and you loose it counter clockwise. Some people suggest using a breaker bar against a car frame. However, if it is loosed counter clockwise, this technic will not work. I am confused.

Autozone info on the process:
AutoZone.com | Vehicle Selection - Year

Doesn't say which way to turn; I would think it would be counterclockwise to loosen since wouldn't the turning of the engine clockwise and the pull of the belt counterclockwise (when running) would tend to tighten the bolt instead of loosening it?

Also, install torque: 1990 Accord-166 ft. lbs. (230 Nm) according to Autozone.

crankshaft pulley bolt

You have to rent or borrow a 3/4 inch air impact gun. It comes off counter clockwise. You'll be surprised how fast it comes off with a 3/4 inch impact gun.

I bought the tool for my 2004 civic, It hold the crankshaft pulley and I used a big breaker bar and broke it loose.
