Tried to remove the balancer on a 440 and cannot get the bolt to budge! Tried a little heat and plenty of breaker bar and nothing. Any tricks out there for this? I am going to get an impact tomorrow and try that, but I've removed plenty and never had one this tight!
I have tried a long bar on the breaker bar and even tried the starter trick. Any good ideas on how to hold the engine from turning over other than wedging a nail bar in the teeth on the convertor as its a bear to hold? Should I try more heat?
Quote: Put a socket and breaker bar on it. Position the bar against the frame and have someone bump the starter over. Be carefull bar needs to hit the top of the left frame rail or bottom of the right.
If that doesn't work.........well IDK??
It is right hand thread. Righty tighty, lefty loosey.
