turning your crank manually



turning your crank manually

Postby grumpyvette » November 21st, 2011, 3:27 pm

hey grumpyvette?
I need to be able to roll over my crank several times, while I work on my engine and I would prefer not to risk messing up the crank snout threads for the balancer bolt. The motor is in the car, and I would like to avoid removing it. Is there a socket that goes over the crank shaft snout in the front that locks onto the for most woodruff key? I'm imagining something that would slide over the snout, engage that woodruff key, and have a 3/4" hex head on the end of it mate with a socket or wrench. Does any such animal exist?"

BTW theres even a tool for spinning it from the flex-plate or flywheel

failure to use the correct oil pump,mounting stud, bolt or nut or carefully check clearances when mounting an oil pump can cause problems

ONE RATHER COMMON MISTAKE IS USING THE WRONG OIL PUMP STUD OR BOLT TO MOUNT THE OIL PUMP AS IF EITHER EXTENDS THRU THE REAR MAIN CAP IT CAN AND WILL BIND ON THE BEARING AND LOCK OR RESTRICT, SMOOTH ROTATION
Image
BE 100% SURE that the oil pump bolt or STUD doesn,t protrude past the inner main cap surface , because if it bears on the rear main bearing shell it will almost always result in a quickly failed rear bearing

when purchasing a crank socket try to find one designed to easily accept and lock down a degree wheel

THE COMP SOCKETS ARE FAR MORE DURABLE STEEL
