    I just am trying to put on my new nst crank pulley I foolowed a couple of write ups. But when I try and try taking off the stock pulley with my breaker bar it will not budge. The pulleys are a little warm could this have an impact on why the bolt will not come out. ANY HELP pLEASE

    You may need to lengthen your breaker bar by using a pipe.

    recommend removing anything from the engine while hot. Let it cool down a bit. Don't want to strip anything. That bolt is a biach:eek: Get under there and muscle it up. Make sure you have the two bolts provided by NST on there good. Don't want to damage the crank seal either...

    Yeah man I was looking at your writeup any really helped me. Up until the point that I could not even get that bolt to budge. And I didn't get any bolts with the pulley. I just went to auto zone and bought some. Should I have gotten them with the pulley when I ordered them. I got it from shane at sittin sic.

    Yeah I got the same thread size and spec. I tightened them all the way till I felt them against the block. Did you tighten them until you couldn't tighten any more.

    Yeah, it took me almost an hour to get off my Alt. pulley. Try finding a friend with a impact gun, thats what I used with an impact socket.
    The WP was a breeze though, took me 10 min to swap it out.

    And I bought my pulleys from Shane as well. Great guy! And I was inspired to buy them because of Roxspin's build page. haha

    Trying to get this fucking bolt off is driving me nuts.:mad: Been trying again for about 2 hours will not move. I think I might take it too a shop.

    No, it was electric. Make sure the socket is impact though.

    Also, I took the Alternator off and disconnected it to get more grip on it.
    Here's a tip, get an old pulley belt, cut off a section of it that you can grip with a pair of channels locks and then hold it. That'll provide the friction so you can break it loose.

    It's frustrating as hell, but in the end it's worth it.

    You used an impact gun for the Alt pulley. I believe the OP is trying to remove the crank pulley. For that you will need to tourqe down the 2 bolts and us a breaker bar on that crank bolt. One hell of a bitch but can be done.

    You are turning the right way? LOL, j/k

    I will look into another right up and see if I can be of more assistance...

    Tools needed;

    Lift, ramps or floor jack & jack stands
    two 8mm x 1.25 bolt, 2"+ long
    3/8" drive ratchet + 14mm deep socket
    1/2" drive breaker bar +22mm socket
    1/2" drive Torque wrench capable of 200 lbs/ft.
    Wrenching buddy is recommended but not necessary


    First, front end need to be picked up as installation will be coming up from the bottom. Lift or ramps are recommended. If service jack is use, minimum of 2 jack stand are needed.

    The accessories belt has to come off. Use 14mm socket and rotate the tensioner pulley counterclockwise to relieve the tension. This is the pulley between water pump/ radiator fan and AC compressor. Belt should come right out. Pay close attention of the belt routing.

    [​IMG]

    Install two 8mm x 1.25 bolt into threaded holes on the pulley. They need to be around 2"+ long in order to work properly. Turn them all the way in, through the pulley, 'til it made contact with engine block. Then tighten them a little bit more until its snug, about 1/2 - 3/4 turn, this will serve as a pulley holder when removing the crank bolt.

    [​IMG]

    Use 22mm on 1/2" drive breaker bar, and put some muscle into it. Remember lefty loosey.

    The torque on the bolt is 200 ft/lbs. I am pretty big and it took some serious grunt to break it over.

    I was finally able to break the crank bolt with a pipe attached to a breaker bar. After installing the new nst crank pulley it wobbles or shakes. Is this normal?

    No. That is not normal. Is the pulley pushed in far enough? Does the belt line up?
