Crank Pulley Replacement tricks for GM 3.5L LX5 “Shortstar” Aurora Intrique

by birtanpublished on September 28, 2020

Brian's mobile one this is a 99 Oldsmobile Alero it's got a 3.5 liter I'm use the three ones and three eights and three threes not three fives is a weird one it's really hard to find a harmonic balancer for it this is the old harmonic balancer

In the rubber that used to hold the ring on you can see where it is here but there's no bolt holes to get this out at stamp for them and they're really wide but if you look on the backside of this thing it's got little notches cut into

It where you can use a three drop polar but from this side you don't notice that I don't have that much it's like the Center bolts clear up into the metal I've got this plastic thing so there's plastic pins here here and here

We've got those polled I've got this supported by any Jack necessary and then I've got the bolts for the subframe to just kind of hang down on this one and on this one so that's why I've got the access and you got to rotate it so that

It's just the right twist to where it'll works through there it's touchy but it goes touch and go so here's what it looks like pulling with the three jump ball it's not a budget a whole lot this goes

Pop once every now and then so we got the pressure on it so rather than having the poll just you had a ton of pressure you can actually tap on these things and sometimes they'll make them pop got to pop a little bit but not awesome

I went through my bolts and I found a bolt like this for putting it back on because it's really long reach but I think it's 14 by 1.5 and sure enough that's what it is this is one of the ones that I pulled out of some car

Engine that I jumped and I've got a toolbox it's just chock full of stuff just like that a lot bigger gap after a couple bangs though it's coming off just really slow think I've just about got it I'm getting

Some conflict here unfortunately but because that's as far as we can go on this bolt see it's crying it squirted it with a little Lube like destroy the bolt on that okay this one will pull through so you get that one then that one you

Gotta kind of work it in there totally doable those who are wondering who's on the toolbox and who isn't here's what we have so far we got humble mechanic eric the car guy i

Bought a hat and pulled that halfway back when to do that Austar magic Tronics and gasoline and auto bravado that's the nickels I believe I'm one mechanic I think I already said and then

A creator Academy I got to go to it's kind of a beta testing went pretty well if you think this is really time consuming you're right if you look in there you can see I've got the longer bolt and it's just kind of bottom down

In there and on the bolt by the way it's not gonna fall on my shoe I'm stinking these don't actually take forever it just looks an ex and feels and tastes and squats and quacks like it look at

That bar there should be at all I do declare get my half hitch drive because one's in the truck from the Canyonlands trip ones in my other toolbox and one is stuck in the felt thing because I'm using a half inch drive one I don't know

Why I just start things a weird duck okay so we're gonna pull us all the way out and then go back in just a hair so how do you do this without an extra m 14 by 1.5 I don't know as you can't bang on this thing your us it'll mess up the

Thrush washer on the crankshaft just basically a skinny washer that keeps it from going in and out this way if you hammer on it you'll bust that thrust washer or thrust bearing so my advice is don't so you got to grab so we're

Pushing on the crankshaft only the crankshaft not crank shaft engine pushing that makes any sense to follow so this week I've had Cub Scouts bike rodeo and I'm so tired and I did not have the energy for that at the time I

Did it anyway and want kids bikes are safer for that's all good then the next night I had the Sheriff's Department award ceremony that was actually pretty cool it's a little stressful getting everybody out the door

And being there and being on time and finding a table being light and trying to find parking being light but once we got there is a pretty good deal then you get off of this camera the one-handed mechanic cameraman is back

I could just take out this bowl and everything come with it I'd be cool so the new harmonic balancer why not have him get that to the dealership because doorman who usually makes them for the after market it's like this once

we don't want to touch it it's not very common being a 3/5 so they don't want to touch it that being the case I'd get to the dealer like I said for your thing they're $200 when you see oil on the

Inside it's good I did it put a little silicone on your nut washer bolt whatever on the other end look at that sucker look how long that is look how smooth that is it looks like a wedding ring that's something that's just his

Rubbers missing from it so he is this and I'm stacking nuts we're gonna be careful cuz if you go in all the way gets the crank you're done you're out of threads and you cost damage here's the one that we're working with here's the

One that we're installing with 14 points by 1.5 this one's about perfect length for this by the way what's that way somebody's asking from the back of the class a smart kid three inches there's the outer ring in the rubber there's the

New one so we replace the seal normally I wouldn't even think about doing that I just do what this one's doing fine and I am like way the heck behind so we're not going to but the seal is gonna go on this ring doohickey so that has to have

Some grease on it that is non-negotiable or else the new one will leak I'll be like I should replace the seal but it wasn't the seal is the putting this stuff together dry what color is this grease it is Molly

Looking for Molly I'm looking for synthetic green so I went with the crimson I prefer marine grade grease but whatever I just want something synthetic and stringy let me just get this started on there the best that we can and we'll

Try out our Boult – backwards see if it fits through it it doesn't think I got a washer that big that'd be cool you have something more than washers I'm seeing everything in between all that'll work cool like a

Clownfish oh yeah okay I can feel the same bit sticking out over all the edges I'm gonna run without this if we got any more go on the Dragons tail this why did I just send this Intel it kind of

Touching and then I can back it off now it's too hard because it kind of wet night knock but we're still in good shape everything just really centering up nice why cuz I've had a rough know this week's kicking my butt

Make sure the bells not getting pinched under there on either side good let's take a look at it that looks like it's almost done so we're just gonna switch to the factory bolt and back to nineteen no way all wish we were nineteen just

Not dumb like we were wondering nineteen in my case I don't know I wasn't that dumb I was on 19's pretty sorted out us doing pretty good that's when I started traveling and how far do you go on this I think that's

About right so what I was doing before I realized that there were notches for a three job polar so I was taking this guy that looks like some kind of Egyptian hieroglyph of a vulture and I was hooking him behind here pulling on it

And that's how I first got to know how tight it was or how far in it was I think we're there I give a little water there this is a part where I need two hands off because it's smooth compressors have immediately

Start chewing the belt visas well if I don't know where my vault was that 14 by 1.5 or even that I needed it and if I didn't know about a free job polar I'd have been in – no that's like BAM yeah yeah instead I procrastinated and

Hesitated it took forever to get this done wait longer than it should have taken no I'm just jacking this back up to its original position won't put those crossmember bolts back in I'll put that cover back on I'll put the ridiculously

Highly classified wheel back on won't do this before you take it in to your mechanic that's gonna get all over his shirt and everything else and if you do decide to do that just calm down don't spray the whole rest of the car

And the caliper in the wheel well and everywhere I'm gonna be working I don't need that Thanks bless their hearts they wouldn't have done it if they didn't own so I'll let you know yeah you know the best way
