Cam pulley bolts

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

Does anyone have any tips on removing cam pulley bolts that have been loctited?

 

Cheers

Hmmmm. Are you doing them with the belt on the cambelt system?

If so, get someone in the car, and stick the car in top gear with their foot on the brake (or jam a pry bar on the flex plate for an auto), and then have a go.

 

If they've used red loctite, well, you're probably screwed. I'd use blue mid-strength if anything myself.

Engine is on an engine stand, and belt has been removed.

I put an cut old belt around them and the crank, clamped/vice gripped the belt together around the crank so nothing could turn

What pl0x said, and in addition hold the belt firmly on the wheel... or it will jump teeth.

So you clamped the ends of the belt together against the other side of the belt close to the crank pulley so it held tight?

Maybe it was more like this, can't quite remember but made it work with one clamp and a cut belt

If the cams have a hex on it use an appropriate sized spanner on it to lock it
