Hey guys, reporting back after 3+ hours in the garage re-seating my timing belt, one of the camshaft sprockets was off a tooth or two, and the engine was wobbling just a bit when idling. (My friends didn't notice and called me crazy, but it was there. Really.)
One of the trickiest parts when a buddy and I replaced my timing belt this summer was removing the crankshaft pulley bolt, since we didn't have a chain wrench, nor the preferred tool to hold the pulley in place. We ended up MacGyver-ing it with a breaker bar, hammer, length of rope, and two 3in socket extensions.
This afternoon, I was by myself, and had heard on another forum of an interesting way to break the bolt loose. Simply extend the length of a breaker bar using a piece of pipe, set the far end of the pipe on the ground, and MAKE SURE that the bar is on the driver's side and ratchets when lowered (CW), but snags when pulled up (CCW). Then, all you have to do is bump the starter once or twice, and it's loose!
I know this is probably a common method, but I hadn't heard of it until last night, and I thought it was pretty cool. Hope this helps fellow DIY-er's.
(In case you're curious, the re-seating went well, and the engine now runs flawlessly. I couldn't be happier with it!)
