When doing mine the other day, the part that the pulley rides on came out. Let me tell you, it was a bitch to put back. there is a notch on the back of it that needs to be lined up, and has no wiggle room. Once it slides out a 1/2", then you got a problem. Be very careful to make sure this doesn't happen.

Did you get that from TiTAN by any chance?

I sent him my money but later found that he got banned which would explain the lack of communication from a otherwise really quick to respond vendor.

have any contact info I could use?

I spent about two hours trying to loosen the stock pulley. My mistake was, I was not setting the e-brake hard ebough and the crank kept rotating. Also, use a long breaker bar, set that e-brake very firm and 6th gear and turn it. It will work.

I did mine the other day. The vast majority of what I did was the same as the OP's. The biggest difference though is that I didn't need to remove the filter box or sensor, only the intake tube.

My list of tools was sockets: 8mm, 10mm, 14mm, and 22mm. Also a ratchet, short extension, and a breaker bar. You may also need needle nose pliers to remove the PCV tube from the intake tube. Oh, and of course a small amount of oil.

Also, make sure the O ring doesn't slip off.

Great DIY! I wonder if you could use anti-sieze on the crank pulley bolt instead of motor oil. [Speaking here from the land of road salt and sand.]

I had this problem as well. There's a simple solution that should solve your problems.

-Put the car in neutral
-Put the beaker bar with socket on the pulley
-Move the breaker bar as far CLOCKWISE as it will go
-Put the car in sixth
-Pull the breaker bar COUNTER-CLOCKWISE and you should have enough room to break the bolt loose even with the play in sixth

Good luck.

we tried 24" breaker (the longest avaliable at autozone). no help. he and i were going at it for at least an hour.

we think the problem is something his friend did to the car during his first attempt.

we crank the bolt so hard that the car even rotate while the bolt just stay dead on.

as a last resort, we even spray some WD40 on the bolt head flange hoping it would loosen it up... no luck.

im now thinking perhaps kroil might help...

Good luck.

we tried something similar, like releasing the break and let the car roll for a bit in 6 to get a good grip... no luck... perhaps your methond is better and worth a try.
