I tried in vain to remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and wondered if there are any tricks to removing it?

It isn't left hand thread, right?

this bolt can be very tight, it's not a left hand thread. the best method is to use an air wrench (3/4 drive if you can) but if you do not have acsess to this try a socket on a long swing bar, fit it on the crankshaft pulley bolt at around four a clock position and flick the starter switch so that the swing bar hits the ground and with luck the inpact will losen the bolt (make sure the swing bar hits something solid when it hits the ground) or you could remove the starter motor and have a pal jam a large screwdriver in the flywheel ring gear while you loosen the bolt (don't try this on vehicles with auto trans. or you could damage the drive plate)

I have successfully removed the crankshaft bolt by the following method:

1) I bought a piece of "c" channel from home depot and drilled three holes the same pattern as the ones that hold the pulley on. I cut a slot for the crank bolt. This is 36 inches long and heavy duty. I propped it against the front frame rail. Tightened the bolts very tight to avoid damage.

2) I then put a 22MM 6 sided socket (actually 7/8") on the bolt, a short extension, and a 3/4 inch breaker bar (round). I made an extender with a piece of 3/4 black iron pipe. I jacked the car up taller and put in on a heavy duty jack stand. The piece of pipe I could fit under the car was 21". I braced myself on the steering knuckle and pulled very hard and it finally came loose.

Air impact wrench, and starter method did not work. Good ideas, but alas a BFW was the solution.

If anyone is interested, I'll post pics of the bar.

Cheers.

jsinton is an unknown quantity at this point
Counter clockwise to loosen.

I never had a problem using the starter crank method. Did you try that? Always works easy for me, never seen it fail.

But I was afraid to use a piece of metal and three prongs to insert in between spokes of pulley
