h22a4 crank boltin without balancer help!!!!!

I bought a complete short block from a guy, needless to say I did the head gasket and mounted the head. Have everything I need to do timing. But the guy put the crank bolt back in, I guess to hold the 2 crank timing gears in. Well it Look's like he torqued it up pretty good. I can't get the damn thing broke free. The crank timing pulleys move some what freely. I looked down inside and there is no woodruff key. Key way Look's great. I just can't get it to budge! Please someone help! I just want to complete this motor! Can send plenty of Pic's!

Re: h22a4 crank boltin without balancer help!!!!!

Crank bolts get torqued down to 180lb-ft, so you're prolly gonna need at least that much torque to PREVENT the motor from spinning when loosening that bolt since the motor is outta the car.


BUT, if there actually is no woodruff key keeping the crank in time w/ the cams, if you spin the crankshaft trying to loosen the bolt but the cams don't spin/rotate, you risk P2V contact, and bending the valves.


If I were you, I'd find the thickest rope that fits down the spark plug holes, and shove as much rope as you can fit into #1 cylinder. This will be a "hard stop" for the piston to stop against, instead of hitting the valves, while you try to loosen the bolt.

Re: h22a4 crank boltin without balancer help!!!!!

I've heard of this technique be4. But correct me if i'm wrong doesn't cylinder #1 and #4 work together. Like if #1 is TDC isn't #4 TDC as well? Leaving #'s 2 and 3 BDC. Should I coil some rope in #4 as well? Man this job is giving me a headache just thinking about it! To top it off I think the block was outta an SH. Oil filter is in a different spot and my waterpump inlet tube doesn't clear oil filter relocation spot. I am going to have to modify the bracket a lil. If I could just get the damn bolt out I can start reassembly. I'm going to give the rope method a go rite now. Cross your fingers for me. It's been one little thing after another. Just have no luck what so ever. Thank you very much for your input. Greatly appreciated.

Yup #1 and 4 are both @ TDC, while 2 and 3 are BDC

If that doesn't work, you can always take of the sump and then wedge a thick piece of wood in between the crank and block. That will stop anything from moving. Get someone to help hold down on the motor so that you can transfer all the torque to the bolt, and not to the whole motor that wants to move.

Good looking twokexlv6coupe! I coil rope down #1 and #4 cylinders while #2 and #3 were TDC. I must of put 6 ft of cord in each! Spun bolt around until it met resistance. Put my breaker bar and a 6ft pipe and bam busted right free. Couldn't believe it! Mad prop's on an awesome home remedy!

I didn't have that option, that's my normal method for any car that they are tight. Motor was blown. No damage to head and wanted to keep it that way.
