So....this is a dumb question

So, I'm halfway through doing a timing belt and water pump job. I reinserted the crank bolt to properly time the engine but.....now I cant back the crank pulley bolt back out....you know the struggle Im sure.

I cant do the old wrap a belt onto itself trick since the belt and tensioner are already on. Anyone have any other clever ideas?

Impact? If not, DIY a pulley holder. There are M8x1.25 holes in the crank pulley for this exact purpose.

If an impact and DIY cam tool are not available, I used this and it worked just as intended.

I agree with the others. I use impact tools for that specific reason. :-)

I think the auto parts stores have a free loan a tools programs if you don't have one.. :-)

Use a small 3/8" impact and you'll be able to get in there. The bolt shouldn't be that tight. When we shot the video for this job, we held one of the cam pulleys with a special tool and the belt was able to hold the crankshaft timing gear while we loosened the 19mm crank bolt. There is a chance you could skip a tooth doing this but I doubt it. Like I said, the bolt shouldn't be that tight just from turning over the engine. But, the safer option is an impact.

The crankshaft timing gear does have two threaded bolt holes which are a M6 x 1.0 thread pitch. Like Charlie said, you could make your own holder tool with some scrap metal or a piece of wood.

What Tim said small 3/8's. I got my Milwaukee 3/8 stubby in there and it did the trick.

Oh, shoot, you may be right that they are M6 instead of M8... Either way...

The crankshaft pulley (harmonic balancer) has M8 x 1.25 bolt threads so you were right. I'm just assuming he doesn't have the crank pulley on yet and he's dealing with just the crankshaft timing gear which has M6 x 1.0 bolt threads.
