Default Does anyone have a crank pulley install tool??

I'm in the middle of the install and I need the tool!(I figured I could just do the 5th gear/break method but the pulley is still moving counter clockwise which bothers me) Does anyone have one that I can borrow asap??? I'm currently in Midland until Friday than I'm back where I live in Royal Oak. Please shoot me a text at 989 859 7653 if you have one asap and we'll work something out!

Thanks,
Brian

I have done probably 20 timing belt jobs on a Subaru as the service manager at TiC. Never used a specific tool. Just used my long 1/2" wratched and jerked hard clockwise a couple times once the bolt is all the way in. Yes it spins the engine but I have never had one back out. The engine spins the same direction so it won't back out.

I'm talking about removing the stock one not putting it back on, so I need to turn the crank pulley bolt counter clockwise, and even when in 5th gear and the parking break all the way up, the crank is still turning with the bolt counter clockwise

I never had an issue. I used long breaker bar and cheater pipe and got my nuts in a row and a swift hard tug, and loose it is. Same with on few tugs and not an issue. I doubt pb blaster will help as the bolt has a collar and possibly wont allow penetrant to seep in.

This is what I do working alone, on top of keeping it in gear. Worked fine.

Just the parking brake is insufficient. You'll need someone standing on the brake pedal and even then you may get 30-40 degrees of rotation on the crank before the bolt finally breaks loose.
