Ok, I'm trying to take off the crack pulley and i can't loosen this stupid bolt. The engine is just sitting on the pallet as it was shipped to me, don't have an engine stand yet. So any ideas how i can fix the flywheel so that it doesn't turn and so that the engine doesn't move and take the bolt off. I have a huge bar, but everytime i tried using it the engine whould start moving (some one was holding the flywheel). Anyway, u get the idea. And i can't buy an engine stand right now, so that's not an option, and no access to an impact gun.

thx

Andriy

what i did is tied a rope to the flywheel bolt and then turned the flywheel the way tyou would when un-doing the crank pulley and then having the rope go to yhr outer 'lining-up notches" (sorry not sure what there called) and then using a breaker bar on the pulley...

sorry havent really explained in detail but you might get the picture..

another way is to have the rachet on the bolt and send sharp pulses to it using a hammer or somrething... sharp movements will usually break the bond the nut has...

yada yada

understand? i know if i read that again i might not lol :p

I took the flywheel off then put two of the bolts part way back in. Then I wedged a huge screwdriver between the two bolts and rotated the motor until the screwdriver jammed against the engine stand. After that I just used a 1/2" torque wrench to remove the bolt. You could just have someone hold the bar you put on the flywheel if you don't have an engine stand.

i had to take the bolt off today in fact...it was on a pallet like yours....what i did was stick a crowbar in the engine mount, then put a 10ft pipe through the crowbar and put the end under a jackstand that was under a car...that locked the block down so it wouldnt twist....

then i used a breaker bar and put it on the bolt then i took a "arm curl rest" from a workout bench and slipped it on the breaker bar and just jumped on the arm rest part till the bolt poped off....

i would spray the bolt with wd-40 every 2 min for 10 min before trying this...makes it a bit easier

Bent valve !!

Any inlet or exhaust valve will do (bash one out at a scrap yard)
put in vice use a soft hammer bend over 90 deg

locks in flywheel/flexplate teeth to bell boltl hole use to remove/refit crank bolt

(use exhaust valves dont snap as easy,old 8 valvers are best)

:D

Here's what I did, GET MORE LEVERAGE, go to home depot and look for a 4-6 foot metal pole that is hollow, the put one end on your breaker bar and turn at the end of the pole. Your buddy will definetly need to be holding the flywheel strong, but it worked for me.
