Crank shaft pulley removal- Alhambra
« on: February 23, 2020, 05:02:29 PM »
Hi all. The four 6mm hex bolts. I have manual bash hammer type impact driver, not a very good one, but doesn't seem to shift bolts. I'm worried one might round off, which will leave me in a heap of s?%$e...any tips appreciated.

Best tip i've got on that sort of job, is use a hex 6 point socket, not the 12 point ones. They fit the bolt heads better.

If you get really stuck, these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Irwin-394001-Fastener-Remover-Multi/dp/B00ID6E8OM/ can shift problematic bolts, but you want a replacement bolt when putting it back together.

The crank pulley bolts on PD are Allen keys and can be a right arse to remove,I normally hammer the Allen key in and gun them off.

Hi thanks for reply. Yes have Allen bolts out now. They were surprisingly loose once cracked off.
