    so as i was driving home today i hear some weird noises from the engine bay. grinding noises. pull over, pop the hood and see the accessory pulley going everywhich way. UH OH!

    tighen that ish up, start car, noises gone. get within a mile or so of my house and i can hear it again. oh well no big deal. putt the car down the hill in idle and pull into the driveway. take off tire and get the ratchet and breaker bar. sucker isnt coming off this time :)

    SNAP!

    so i have 3/4 of a crank pulley bolt in my hand.

    on the end of the bolt.you will need to cut a groove..like the one on the end of a thread chaser..then just screw it in and pull it back out,clean it up and do that a couple more times..it works very well
