Re: Crankshaft removal
I am assuming some things here so correct me if i'm wrong,I assume you have the engine out of the car, and i assume you are not able to get the bolt on the pulley loose because the crank keeps turning and i assume its a F9Q Engine.
First of all, on the side of the block facing the radiator about 60mm from the flywheel side, there is a plugbolt its about M8 or M10 if i remember correctly, if you remove the plug you can insert a locking tool ( a correct size rod will do) but watch out not to damage the threads.
If you have removed the other main bearing caps it is better to replace them before trying to loosen the crank bolt so you dont damage anything.
Alternatively you will have to lock it on the flywheel teeth but again be careful not damage anything
