Crank Pulley removal

01-17-2015, 06:00 PM
Do anybody out there know which direction the to turn the crank pulley bolt to loosen the Bolt? I'm trying to change the crank positioning sensor and the cam positioning sensor. I have changed the knock sensor. But just can't remove or break the crankshaft pulley bolt. Help!!!!!!

I've done it without air tools many times. I even did it with no one holding the brake. I used a large screwdriver, or a pry bar, and slid it into the rotor vane and let it jam against the brake caliper bracket before applying muscle to break it loose.

Also I used a few extensions to get the breaker bar out past the fender to be able to apply the most amount of force.
