Drive Pulley Bolt Empty
PostSubject: Drive Pulley Bolt   Drive Pulley Bolt I_icon_minitimeTue May 07, 2019 9:25 pm

I am awaiting delivery of a new OEM drive belt, Dr. Pulley 24 gram sliders and variator guides and a Honda variator holding tool.

In anticipation, I am wondering if the bolt that holds the drive pulley in place offers any special challenges.

I know it's torqued to 76 ft. lbs. so is it easy to loosen with a standard 1/4" or 1/2" socket wrench? Or should I have an impact wrench and torque socket handy?

My 2012 is very clean and so far I've had no issues with frozen bolts or screws, and I'm pretty sure the pulley bolt will work as it should. I just want to know the best way to work with it.

Thanks.

Mike

Sure you can loosen the bolt with an impact tool (17 mm socket). But please do not use an impact tool to tighten the bolt. Use a proper torque wrench. While there will be conflicting opinions from others, IMHO if using a power tool to reinstall the bolt it's very easy for something to go wrong very quickly.

Also, it is not necessary to get that official Honda variator tool. There are several posts here showing inexpensive DIY tools. But if you've already ordered the tool...

"Sure you can loosen the bolt with an impact tool (17 mm socket). But please do not use an impact tool to tighten the bolt. Use a proper torque wrench."

I bought a torque wrench that goes up to 80 ft. lbs. just for this occasion ($20 at that wonder store, Harbor Freight). I'm aware I can loosen the bolt in theory. I was wondering more if it's really, really hard to do ... I don't have the oomph that I had a few decades ago. That's why I was thinking maybe have an impact wrench to get it loose.

As Tim said earlier an impact wrench will undo it no prob's, but may be a bit expensive if you only anticipate using it once/rarely, you may like to consider one of these as an  'affordable alternate' bud ............

And you can use that Breaker Bar when you decide to remove the rear wheel too.

It's kinda taboo to use a torque wrench to loosen a bolt or nut. A torque wrench is a dedicated tool to apply final torque to a fastener.
