    I'm Changing the timmig belt in my 1990 civic HB and I can't get the Crank Pulley of because it keeps turning the engine. How do I get it off? I didn't want to take it to a shop because I hear they try to rip girls off. :angry:

    You can either buy a tool that keeps the pulley from turning while you crank on the nut (costs anywhere from $30-$60 depending on where you buy it), or you can take off the little rubber cover that gives you access to the flywheel (near where the tranny mates to the block), and jam a heavy-duty screwdriver in there to keep the engine from turning over.

    put the car in gear and use air tools
    if you dont have access to air tools then use a long bar for added leverage

    good luck

    Put car in 5th, step on brakes.
    Use a very powerful air gun, if not, then use a very long and strong braker bar.

    Those bolts sucks ass! :lol:
