Yes it does turn CC. So the next time look at a new harmonic bolt to see how the threads are laying on the bolt.[left or right threaded]. Another lesson learned about life...!

To loosen the bolt it turns counter clockwise. I put a large screw driver behind the balancer (dont pry it) and it popped loose. When pulling it off dont smash your knuckle like I did. Ouch!!! Impact gun works wonders

|coldbear||Fellas...THINK HOW EASY IT IS TO LOCK YOUR MOTOR AFTER PLUG REMOVAL? Simply take about a foot of cotton 5/16 rope and stuff this into # 1 hole. She'll lock it for sure because the piston cannot reach the TDC. It's so simple...I've done it dozens of times with motors. A well kept secret from an old line machanic!|

Yes working in the street in all weather's, with thieves all around just waiting to steal your tools and parts isn't a pleasant experience!!

|Grumpy||It's just too bad that from the start it seemed to be difficult to obtain accurate info on the Sigma engine (even from UK websites/forums etc.), and the confusion with obtaining the correct/applicable tooling, did not help. I'm glad that it "lit off", and it's running. You did very well, especially with where you were having to work.|
