Damn! how big of a breaker and what did you use to jam the fly wheel?SlvLude said:When I did mine twice now the airgun would not take the bolt off and we did not have the honda tool. We just jamed the flywheel and used a huge breaker bar and lots of strength and it came loose.
Thanks for all the help...71dsp said:We used to just have someone stand on the brakes in 5th gear and use a 3 1/2 foot Snap On breaker bar to break torque on the crank pulley bolt.
However, the last 5Gen I worked on, there was enough flex in the engine mounts that we could NOT get enough torque on the crank pulley even with the breaker bar. I went back home, picked up my Honda tool for the crank pulley, and it came RIGHT off.
So, chances are, you might be able to get it off, but if it's anything like this last 5Gen I worked on, you're going to need the special tool, or lock up the flywheel (be careful not to damage the teeth).
350-400 ft*lbs!!! It might take that much torque to break torque on the bolt when you are removing it, but the Helm's manual clearly states that the torque spec on the crank pulley bolt is 181 ft*lbs.H22A VTEC said:From what I have 'heard' the torque number was more around 350-400lbs. of torque. Since our numbers are WAY off, I wonder which is true? As for replacing my crank, the bolt snapped leaving the other end of the bolt in the bottom end. The pulley itself fell down and I ran over it with my rear tire. IF they can take out the bolt inside, I can resalvage the crank, if not, then that brings damages REALLY high.
