Hi,

Does anyone here know how to remove the crankshaft pulley nut?

I need to remove in to be able to take off the timing belt cover.

Coz i need to pull off the top end for a spring, valve and cam swap.

By the way, the engine is out of the car and sitting on a pallet.

thanks.

Can i buy a battery powered one?

Or i got to go the extra mile and buy an air compressor and the gun?

I've never used a battery powered one but that should work , I'd get the highest ft/lb one I could find, at least 300lb.

All good guys.

I did it with no impact gun.

I went down to my local auto car parts (Autobarn), and one guy there said to just remove the starter motor and then put a screwdriver inbetween the flywheel teeth, then slowly apply pressure to a 1/2 wrench with 19mm nut anti-clockwise.

I asked my brother to hold the flywheel with a smallish screwdriver and I turned the crankshaft nut anti-clockwise. It worked. Plus, I didnt need to use a harmonic balancer to remove the crankshaft pulley. I just pulled it right off with my hands - much easier than an alternator.

I have a pulley holder tool but the screw driver against the flywheel has worked in the past too when done carefully.
