I agree! ~ It would have been nice to know that it used an integrated bolt & washer [one piece]. It would have been nice to know that the flywheel locking tool was superior to a 'bendy' locking pin ~ BUT I KNOW NOW

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!!

Cheers!

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!

Harmonic Balancer

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

Oh man....

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...!

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.
