Default Success FINALLY with damper bolt...

Re: 88 Camry wagon:
Had to buy abt $80 worth of tools to do it! MY 1/2 in air impact
wrench and 1/2 in. breaker bar would not loosen the bolt. after
appplying a lot of Kroil and even heating with MAPP gas.
Got a 3/4 in breaker bar, 16 in extension, and 19 mm socket
.....cheap price from eBay. MAPP gas torch...$40.00. Got 16 in
cheater pipe.
Put the socket/extension/breaker bar on the damper pulley bolt, and
supported the end of the extension right next to breaker bar with a
jack stand, adjusted so that the extension/socket was
straight/centered in line with the bolt and crankshaft. Locked up
crankshaft with a crowbar (oil pan removed). Got assistant to heat
the bolt up with MAPP gas. Because of the jackstand support, I was
able to literally stand on the breaker bar (actually the cheater
pipe). Finally there was a loud POP! and the bolt was loose. PHEW!
Hows that for rediculously over-torqued/tight!

I'll probably still come out ahead doing the overhaul myself...but not
by a lot, figuring in the tools I had to buy. Thanks Geronimo

Who cares if you come out ahead. Figuring out how to get it done yourself
(will a torch no less) is the way to go. Show that machine whos boss.

Congrats,.. you had to take the oil-pan off,..wot a bummer.

There may have been some moisture which got into the threads and
"rust-welded" it.
"Rust welding" nature's way of learning us to use WD40.

Next time rent a 3/4 impact wrench. It'll pop it right out.
