PITA 22RE Crank Pulley

Been trying to remove the crank pulley of a 22RE for a day now. I've been soaking it with PB blaster, had my impact on it, and had a 4 foot cheater on it (overpowering the brakes). Thing still wont budge. I was told it's not reverse thread so correct me if I'm wrong there. Any advice on removing this would be great. How much force can this bolt handle (19mm head) before I'm stuck with a sheared pulley bolt in my block? Thanks.

you can try putting your cheater up against the frame and trying to turn the engine over with the starter, that will usually break it loose, but dont hold the key if it doesnt break loose just tap it a few times, if that doesnt work heat up the bolt with a torch and use your impact.

yep been there. my last one was on so tight i had to put 2x4's between the block and the crank and use a 5' piece of pipe. i did not try the heat, but the impact was of no use. once it was out, the who thing was covered in thread locker...good luck

Put cheater bar against frame, put it in gear and pull the whole truck with another vehicle.

I've got the whole motor tore down to the block and a PITA crank bolt. So I'm not sure what the repercussions would be in truing to crank it. No electronics left on the motor, so ignition is out, can it be done by jumping the starter directly with a set of cables? Also, how much heat can I out on this thing before I weaken the bolt or do some damage?

I had the same problem - motor torn down but still had to get the pulley bolt out. I got a pipe chain wrench - a big $90 sucker made by Rigid. With the engine on my stand, I wrapped the chain around the pulley and held it while another friend backed the bolt out with a long breaker bar. Use a 6pt socket since a 12er will strip the head when doing this.

Got 'er done! Wired everything back up to get her cranked over. A bit of heat and with the help of the starter, popped that sucker right off. Thanks for the help!
