90 Honda 2.0 crank pulley

I need to replace the crank pulley on the 2.0 but the bolt does not want to turn. I tried turning it to the left it will not move . Same thing when I try going to the right. Does anybody have any ideas about getting the bolt out?

Easiest way is with an impact gun. You can get it out with a breaker bar, but you have to be able to hold the pulley stationery at the same time - big hassle. Take less than 10 sec with a gun.

As the tow guy said, the easiest way to do it is with an impact wrench. If you don't have an impact wrench, you'll need to buy a special "Harmonic Balancer Holding Tool". It looks like this



and is available from Ontool.com for about $55. If you're handy w/ a welder you can make your own for less than $10.

I agree with both of these gents.

TowGuy's way is the "poor man's way" and can be quite dangerous if you are not careful. We've done this in the shop.

You wedge a long socket with an extension into place and use a quick burst of the key to loosen the bolt.

I would gather you can rent the tool that Knuckles furnished the photo of from Autozone or any good parts store with a tool rental program. That's the way I would go here.

Thanks, Joe and knuckles, I keep forgetting that a lot of these specialized tools are available for loan/rent from some of the parts places.

That or a bigger hammer works .

TowGuy:

I inherited another 1980 Trans Am from a neighbor of my coworker who bailed out and bought a new Mustang.

I have to have the unit towed to my grandparent's house (where I will store it for now) because it is one piece of work.

Comes with a rebuilt 400 (in addition to the running 400 in it now!) and a bunch of GM goodies as well. Not bad for 0 bones .

I want to say thanks to everybody for the info. on getting the crank pulley off the 90 Honda 2.0. We got it off with a breaker bar and pipe with a 200lb freind on the bar. The extra weight did the job. Thanks again.

$35 + $2 a mile on the T/A, Joe; of course there will be a surcharge for distance TO the vehicle, too - say about $1500.

Just a note...

Honda engines rotate Counter Clockwise. If you try to remove the balancer bolt w/ the starter you'll probably end up breaking it off as you will actually be tightening the bolt.
