I installed mine in about an hour. You don't need any special tools, but will need one person to apply on brake while you break the crank pulley bolt loose...
the brake doesnt do anything... learned that myself two nights ago. just put it in 5th gear and it will only have a little play in it.
There is a shortcut which may not be safe to do, but it worked for me. I found it on the forums a long time ago and did the install a long time ago so you may want to look it up first. It involves cranking the engine for a second to break the nut loose on the crank pulley. Have someone in the front of the car holding the nut with a breaker bar or something long enough to hold onto without having your hand by the other pullies and have the other person crank the engine for a second. It worked like a charm for me.
My old, but missed Subaru.
pull the fuse for the ignition if you use the method above. however, its really not necessary... just get a nice breaker bar and dont hold back .
Bryan is correct. The easiest way is with the car in fifth, e-brake on, and using a breaker bar or extended 1/2 ratchet. A pipe on a ratchet will also work if you don't have the correct tools.
sounds like fun.... I am going to have help from a guy I know who has a shop near me where they turbo V-TEC's. He said its easy.Originally Posted by Trainrex

How about the re-installment of the aftermarket crank pulley? The specs calls out to torque it down to 98 ft-lbs. Any suggestions..... let me guess, a longer breaker bar.
What about matching the torque specs? It has to be between 91-94 I hear, but how the hell will I know how much torque I am putting down. Is this reall a smart mod to do by yourself? My friend did his on another car and tightened it too much snapping the bolt. And I dont want it to be too loose? So what do you guys think?
Use a torque wrench to measure torque.Originally Posted by webster
If your friend snapped the crank bolt, he was REALLY tightening it.
Yeh Im tryin to find one. Thanks.
