Welcome to FF catso!
Can you wonder if I cringed the last time someone bent a timing pin?
Grumpy gets most of the credit, miss seeing him here. Quite the worldwide effort at the time.

|catso||Epic thread indeed! I've been wrenching for many a year and have encountered lots of adversity, but I must say this crew was very tenacious in resolving the many issues that came up. This thread should be required reading for all starting mechanics and used in teaching "Timing Belt 101" to all Focus owners.|

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!|
