Front pulley
« on: April 12, 2020, 05:22:00 PM »
Hi guys, this may seem like a silly question. "Is the front pulley bolt right or left hand thread". I`m asking because I`m stripping down my engine and I cannot get the bolt to move either way. I`ve got my flywheel lock on and just want to be sure of the thread before I get my 3/4 drive power bar on it ha ha.
Thanks
Dave

Right hand thread and these bolts offen bite real tight, so yes 3/4 drive bar  and a nice hexagonal 19mm socket  required
All the best Clive

Any specific flywheel lock needed to get the front pulley nut off? And alternatively for tightening the flywheel nit on also.

Thanks
