Default Crankshaft pully question...


I'm gearing up to replace my first Subaru timing belt (1995 Legacy, 173,000+ miles, AT).

I've read about the 'bump the starter' method for loosening the crankshaft pully nut. Sounds like a a good trick.

But if I use this method, how would I hold the pully to properly torque the nut?

Search the forums for the 4EAT inspection hole.

I am not sure of your car has a 4EAT, but I would suspect that the transmission has a similar hole that had a rubber plug covering it where you can look down at the Torque Converter.

You find that hole, Jam something really long and sturdy in it like a crowbar, and tighten/loosen away.


You don't want a wobbler that eventually shears the end of the woodruff key.

Good Luck and use the Force.

I just did it on my AT, just get a breaker bar, theres a why to stick a screw driver to the left of the pulley, so when yo loosen it the pulley will not move. Then your all set.
