1.6 Zetec SE Crankshaft Pulley

Hi all. Gonna change my timing belt, tensioner and water pump on my 2001 Focus.

Have read loads of great threads on here on how to or how not to change the belt.

I've got all the tools including a flywheel locking tool to hold crankshaft still whilst removing/replacing bolt.

My biggest fear is removing/replacing the actual pulley which is a press/interference type. Has anyone got any good tips on best way to remove it...replace it? It doesnt appear to have any bolt holes to secure a normal puller to it. I do have a 3 leg puller but a little feared that it may snap the pulley depending on how tight it is.

Any advice would be appreciated.

you should be able to use a gear puller if it is just a interference fit. you can try and put some penetrating oil on it to aid the removal.

i usually use lps penetrating oil, but this plus gas looks like it may do the job.

Just a quick update.

Changed timing belt, tensioner & water pump. Pulley was not "tapered" after all (later found out from Haynes Tech that the 1.6 engine covered in the book was an earlier engine (with pressed on pulley)....oh well 60 wasted in buying tools before doing job...doh)

Anyway crankshaft bolt was no match for my 12v impact gun and pulley slid off and on no probs. Doing exact same on another car next week.....oh joy!

Yep sailor.....have read it a couple of times....think I remember you actually contributed to it. Amazed at how the forum helped him.

That thread gave me some nightmares on how bad the pulley bolt was but as I say I have an RAC 12v wheel nut gun and for under 30 it worked a treat....took about 1 minute of impacting but slowly released it. Gonna be doing another in a couple of days.

Have seen plenty of vids on Youtube of how to do the cambelt change but the problem is the good/clear ones are all 2.0 USA and we have the 1.4/1.6 engines which are differant.

Great site!

Hiya, I think the crank pulley on my car is the same, not tapered. How did you go about refitting it? I was gonna torque to 90 nm then use my air gun to rotate the bolt 90 degrees, but forums say I need to use a special tool to push the crank pulley on but think like yourself I have a newer engine and not one like in the Haynes manual!

Lee on the 1.6 Zetec SE (fitted to the Focus) the crankshaft bolt is ONLY tightened to 40nm then angle tightened a further 90 degrees. I used a socket and long extension to tighten the bolt as its a stretch type bolt and I thought the impact gun may of been too aggressive for stretching.

I locked the crankshaft from start to finish of job by removing the starter and using Laser 4275 tool (Ford garages only use a locking pin in the TDC hole for this job). I know this maybe a bit of overkill but once TDC was set and tool fitted it meant the crankshaft bolt could be loosened/tightened without worrying about anything else moving.

Make yourself a cuppa and read this, it explains why I spent the extra time removing the starter:

Thanks for the speedy reply!! I meant to put 40nm not 90! I have removed the starter and was gonna use a screwdriver to lock the flywheel, what's this tool you have mentioned?, may be of use to me when I do my next cambelt on one of these!
