Hey fellow Mx6r,
I'm having problem taking off the crankshaft bolt on the pulley. I tried that breaker bar method (bump da crank w/bar), but it didn't work to well. I purchase a compressor a 33 gallon 150psi 3.5 [email protected] and a 250lb torque impact wrench but no luck as well. I tried torching it, kicking it, baking it, and just about everything but the bolt is still stuck. Any good advice??

Thnx peeps

ok, I'd hit it with liquid wrench and then let it set. Try agani with the breaker bar method. I managed to muscle mine off with the engine in my storage room which proves they are on there tight, but not that tight.

How is it not working? Is the engine not turning or the bar comming off?

well I took it to my uncle shop today and they just used the impact wrench and it came off. they said the previous owner strip the bolt so the breaker bar didn't hold to well. thank you all for your input. I really appreciate it.
