V6 Essex Bottom pulley

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anybody confirm I can take off the bottom pulley without disturbing the timing. I want to refurb all the pulleys so I can powder coat as the engine is visible.  I know it’s keyed just not obvious if it will affect the timing set up

Sounds a stupid question, but I’m sat here without a manual at the momen

Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

Yes you can remove the bottom pulley (the bolt will be bloody tight), the timing gear on the crankshaft & camshaft are behind the timing case, so taking off the pulley will not alter the timing at all.

 

Just be nice and gentle when re-fitting the pulley that you don't damage the lips of the crank pulley seal when your re-fitting the pulley.

 

Good luck when un-doing that bottom bolt, you will need a good breaker bar.

 

Regards.

 

Al.
