hi everybody!

right ive been doing a HG on a 1.8 k-series engine and i cant get the crankshaft pulley bolt off, the air gun wont budge it but its only a small compressor, tried a bar but didnt get much leverage and heat, nothing,

the flywheel has been locked and the engine just lifts up!

does anyone know anyone mobile who can budge it or any tips?
dont mind paying someone off here with the right bit of kit who can move it smile

Its a shame you you didnt address this whilst the engine still turned over as you could of pput the bar on it then turned her over and used the ground and strength of the engine to do it. Other than that have you tried putting some thing over the bar to creat more leverage?

I ended up with about 3 foot of leverage on a Volvo engine - at least it was a large nut and little chance of the socket splitting, this is the type of reason I gave up doing my own stuff, frightening when you see levers bending.

I've tie-wrapped a crow bar to a socket set lever before now but hose-clips would probably be better, just that I had loads of spare tie-wraps.

Rhys is still waiting for you to "pop down to Upton" as you said you would.

If you don't like your repuatation tarnished, dont be a scam-artist. The tools you used to do his suspension were poundland's finest, you fooked-up the job and then did a bodge fix, potentially leaving the car unsafe, you put his wheels back on back-to-front, you doubled the fee cos of your mistake, and Rhys still had to pay money to replace the part, and even when you agreed to pay a miserly sum of 20 (considering the part cost Rhys that much after you had charged him 120 to do a bodge job) you did'nt have the balls or decency to actually show up and pay it, and apologise.

Keep on scamming, and we will keep on reminding people of exactly the type of person you are and you amazing lack of skill and ethics.

And yes, I saw your bodge work first hand, as I had to help Rhys fix the shit you did to his car, and an DIY mechanic would'nt have even left it in the state you did!!

poundlands finest? i use TENG & draper tools, wanna look in my box?

anyway go price up in garages the cost for the work i did. Autodata states that the time to do front and rear is 6 Hours.
and let me guess a normal garage is around 40 an hour, that makes alot more than what i charged, i tired everything to fix the parts that snapped, we snapped countless bits

i am sorting it out, dont worry it has been some time but i will be intouch with rhys soon, and make it worth it smile


CAN WE PLEASE STOP THE SPAM NOW smile

if we have any problmes lets keep it in PM's

Please can we keep this between the parties involoved, IT WILL BE SORTED.
