A crank pully remover you can rent at Autozone! The torque to put it back on is about 80lbs as stated by another member!

Your trying to take the obolt out???? or trying to remove the pulley with the bolt already out???

In any case..... to take the bolt put just out the breaker bar on the bolt and wedge it up against something solid on the car like the sub-frame or control arm. Then just "bump" the engine over...... as in just a momentary crank of the engine. it will rotate the correct dirrection to break the bolt loose.

Go to Auotzone and buy a cheap "steering wheel puller". It is just a pulley puller that will aloy you to pull the pulley off the crank. you can half the time just simply use two pry bars and "wiggle" it off but this doesn't always work.

You'll need 2 logn 6.0 x 1.0mm bolts, usually steering wheel pullers come with standard sizes only, unless you buy a good set.

i bumped it off.. easy ass pie! thankyou and thanks to youtube! (saw it in action lol took the fear out when i saw em do it to an audi) i tried wiggling the pully with two screwdrivers first and chiped the lip to the powersteering part of the pully... that pissed me off so i bought a timing pully remover and that did the trick...
