hi i removed the crankshaft pulley bolt to do timing belt etc. when i removed the bolt it had been rethreaded had a look at the crank where the bolt go's into and the crank is also rethreaded is they anyway i can fix this. i have tried a new bolt but its rethreaded that aswell.

could i have a new thread put in it and use a smaller bolt

thanks

Are you saying the bolt/hole is stripped?

What is wrong with the bolt that you pulled out?
Will it not go back in and torque down to spec?

the bolt i pulled out was stripped so replaced it with a new one and it stripped that aswell. where the bolt go's to hold the pulley into the crank is also stripped the hole of the crank.

Get a tap and see if you can "clean" up the threads in the crank.
i did clean it it but when i put the new bolt in it has lost all the threads on the crank and now is smooth

Get a tap, some tapping fluid, and a tap handle. Attempt to clean up the threads. Or, go through the hassle of pulling the crank, taking it to a machine shop, seeing if they can fix it, paying them to fix it, reinstall the crank, and hoping that works, or, ust swapping in another engine.

basically the crank needs a new thread put in it if i have a new thread put in would it be safe to use a different bolt

if i cant fix the problem then best bet would be to change the bottom end on it. it is a jdm eg4 d15b vtec that i have so would a d16z6 bottom end be ok to use.
