Hi
I`m having hell of a job trying to undo the bottom pulley(cam belt end)
I`ve tried everything but it just won`t budge:mad:
It`s not left hand thread or anything is it?
Cheers
Adrian

No its normal thread. Try putting the car in 5th gear, get someone to put their foot on the brake, get a big breaker bar and try again.

I used a wedge of wood across a crank web (sump was off) and a 18" breaker bar with a extension bar (read 3ft scaffolding pipe).

Oh and it needs some elbow grease ;)

if engine is out i put a gearbox bolt back in, rest a crowbar on that and jam it in the fly wheel, then use breaker bar on other end.
its better with 2 people though, 1 to keep fly wheel still, other to undo bolt
