Hey boys... yet another question :oops:

im trying to undo the nut on my harmonic balancer to replace it... but when we try and undo it it spins and turns the motor over.... i followed what my workshop manual said... which states to put the car in gear... i have an auto if this helps... and its a Series 2 EF Fairmont with a Tickford engine.....

thanks in advance for your help,
Saiken

Use a breaker bar ( about 18" long), with an impact socket, place it so the end of the bar is on the chassis rail, insure its in neutral, quick flick the key, on then off, this will undo the bolt.

No room for a rattle gun, even an IR gun won't fit. They are shorter than Shimano and Snap-on.

I use a rattle wrench (they fit), or when I CBF wheeling the compressor out just hit the end of a breaker bar with a hammer.

I have never been a fan of the starter motor trick - can see too much potential for something to go wrong. Its not that hard to crack the nut anyway.

I've used the starter motor and it worked well. However I don't use the key, nor do I recommend a quick flick with the key to others where I don't know their mechanical abilities.

Either jump the starter relay with the key off or remove the coil lead. Using the starter relay puts you in a position where you can see what's happening plus with the ignition off there is no chance the engine will start.
