I've never taken my crank bolt off, but you can try the method I used to remove the PS and alternator pulleys. I've also read a tutorial that says this has worked on crank bolts, but I've never tried it. Get an old V-belt and wrap it around the crank pulley. Next take a chain vise grip and fasten it onto the belt. I'm not sure how many ft-lbs of torque it'll hold before it slips, but it's worth a try.

Time for the Torch!! Heat that bastard up it will come off. BTW your puny Campelfield impact wont do it. Get an Ingersol Rand :)

You can always try the breaker bar from hell technique. :twisted: My buddy has a 3' bar and then we slip a 6' piece of aluminum square tubing over that. Nothing has stood in our way since then :lol:

you could try a using a floor jack with a wooden block, jack it up under the pulley just enough to get the weight on it, then push like hell on that breaker bar. it's torqued to 134 ft/lbs, so you can't be a puss about it! haha

sometimes those fuckers are mean...... thick towel Or a flat belt and a big pipe wrench will usually do the trick.........


Those things are wierd sometimes.....I Put the nut on with an air gun....But 5 minutes later The air gun wouldn't take it off

to get mine off, I got extensions for the socket so it would clear out past the fender, then I propt the socket wrench on a jack stand and put a 6ft piece of pipe over it in a cheater bar fashion, with a little force it came right out

if you dont mind a little more work, most cars have a shield on the bottom. take that out and wedge something strong inthere to stop the crank from spinning and get your b-bar and break it off that way. Ive done it that way for along time and also threw the starter if Im at home doing some shadetree mechanics.

i had one that wouldnt come off regardless of what i tried, torch, 4ft breaker bar with my 180lbs ass standing on it, 1/2" impact, all of them useless! so i took it to my local hole-in-the-wall honda shop and he popped it off in 5 seconds with a beefy 3/4" badass impact.

I had to use a BIG ass air gun to loosen mine.
Tried a medium sized one first, but it didn't do anything...
Then I used the biggest one, and it was off in a second.

my 220 pound ass on a 4' breaker wouldn't budge my A6's bolt. I used an iron alen wrench to hold the flywheel in place and just reefed on the damn thing for hours. Finally got it off after putting some wd40 and my 160 pound brother on the breaker bar also.
