    Need to know how to remove the bolt that holds on the Crank Drivebelt Pulley (Harmonic Balancer). AN 1/2 impact wont break it loose. I tried a large breaker bar jammed up on the engine mount , put the car in gear and draged it and the tires just skid any ideas? Its a Civic

    You can get a crank pulley tool from Honda, Snap-On, or some companies online if you can wait. Otherwise, take it to Honda, have them crank it, then tighten it again, drive home and remove it yourself.

    find an impact wrench
     
  4. Honda Special Tool #9356-03 made by Snap-On. Or Honda Master Tech Tool Series SF15-T135 part number SF15-0014. This is a special wrench use to open it.

    Those look like the ones. Makes life infinitely easier. An impact gun won't always do it, unless you've got a hella-nice gun and compressor.

    That's how I did it when I had my H22A out of my car, pre-swap. The crank pulley tool doesn't do you any good then. :D

    WTF? I think we have established which way tightens and which way loosens.

    Air tools are your best friend, I got some Craftsman for 279.99 it came with a 3/8 ratchet/impact wrench.
