I can help if I have time but, I'm in desperate need to do the t-belt in my wife's van first. Next day I have time I will try to do the van's. We could do both at the same time with help from others. Focus t-belt take 2-3 hrs if that. Honda Oddy's takes 9 hrs to do, or at least that's what I've heard.


Spraypaint you have/work at a shop right? Whats the biggest impact you have there rated for? I need like a anvil impact to break the crank pulley bolt loose on the honda. It's only supposed to be like 180 ft lbs but it's on there with 1000 ft lbs. You can google and you tube honda crank pulley bolt and you'll see lots of stuff pop up. I've tried 3 times already last time with a 4-5 foot breaker bar and all of my weight on it. I still have yet to try the Jesus bar I borrowed from Matt. Just waiting on some time. I may try it sunday.


Sunday's I'm always off. My schedule for next week has me working tuesday night through thursday night. Or we could do it when you get off of work one night since I do work at night and I'm awake all night. Heck we could even pull it into the garage since I made room for the SVT now so we won't be out in the cold.

I am a General Manager of Louetta Automotive on Cypresswood. I am not sure wht my tech's impact is rated at but I have never had him tell me that something is too tight.

If I can't get the bolt broken loose I may come by your shop if that's ok?

I will be glad to see you! Being that they are not my tools my tech may charge a little. I will have to ask him.

Find out out much. Shouldn't be too much there is nothing in the way to get to it except the tire. I took the cover off a long time ago to get to it. Oh wait it fell off lol.
