Problem.

So it turns out just my timing belt broke on my car. So I was in the middle of changing it and I got to the bolt that keeps me from getting to the belt. The big one on the bottom of the block. And it seems that the person that I bought the car from stripped it and put loctite on it to keep it from coming off. Scary right? So maybe some of you know some little tricks to get this freaking screw off. Ive tried torching it, I got a tork wrench. That didnt work either. Idk, I'm kinda stuck.

Re: Problem.

If i remember doing mine, i think your talking about the crank pulley? In order to get the lower part of the timing belt cover off correct?
If that is the bolt, you need a crank pulley removal tool. Or a big ass breaker bar but idk how youd get that leverage in there.I used my hondy crank pulley holder tool. Than broke it loose with a impact, and just re-torqued it when putting back on.

You say its stipped?...O.O=[
Ouch.. If there are any threads left in the hole a machine shop may be able to re-thread it. If not.. then they can bore it out a little and put a steel sleeve to match the bolt. They will need the bolt that goes in it to match up the steel sleeve. Good luck!

Re: Problem.

I popped mine off with an Impact. Good luck replacing the Timing belt though. It took me a few tries. Just make sure everything lines up.

Re: Problem.

If it's stripped, you're pretty screwed.

If not, go to your local auto parts store and rent the crank pulley tool. Use a half inch breaker bar (a very good one) and brace it against the ground. I then used a 6 ft cheater pipe on the actual bolt and it didn't take much effort at all. You could also use the crank pull tool, put the bar in place, and blip the ignition. The started has plenty of torque

I'm not responsible for any death, injury, or broken parts that result from my advice, lol.

Re: Problem.

Once I help friend with that kind of problem and we end up using a rag and put it on the bolt and kind of force the socket in just to see if would work using the impact wrench, we were lucky, it worked, just give it a try

NO!!!

The crank bolt is normal threaded, and the engine turns counter-clockwise, so putting a wrench on the bolt and turning the ignition will TIGHTEN the bolt!!!!!



To the OP... I doubt its stripped or is loc-tited. That bolt/pulley is holding all your timing belts in place, so it obviously needs to be torqued down VERY tightly to prevent any of that stuff from falling off (159lb-ft, to be exact).
You either need a torch, or the crank pulley tool, with a 6 foot cheater bar over 1/2" wrenches. Or a combination of these.

Re: Problem.

To be fair, I would never, ever do that. I had plenty of people on here tell me to do it that way, so I figured they couldn't be wrong. Nevermind on that then, lol. My bad. I did it the way you told me; with a 6ft cheater pipe. Worked like a charm. PB blaster helped.

Re: Problem.

I finally got it! All it took was a bigger tork wrench. Phew. Saved me $600.
