I was wondering if the timing belt can be changed without removing the bottom pulley from the engine. From the pics posted on page 1 of this thread it looks like it can be done without removing the crank pulley. Just wondering if anyone who has done this job before can comment yes or no.


hmmm I'd need to go back over the pics for this job but isn't there a timing mark that is revealed when the balancer is pulled off? I seem to recollect there was a need to align the crankshaft pulley as well as the cam pulleys.
I shied away from the breaker bar against the frame and then engine turn over. I have a thread somewhere on here, basically I used a spanner wrench and breaker bar to the floor and after soaking the bolt for days in rags soaking in pb blaster I got it loose with another breaker bar and a 3 ft length of pipe over the breaker bar. This is Texas though, not the frozen north

The crank pulley sits in front of the timing cover, which covers the timing belt, cam wheels, and idler pulleys. Even if you were able to remove the old timing belt without removing the crank pulley and timing cover behind it, it would be extremely difficult to wrap the new timing belt around the crank sproket, pulleys and cam wheels, ..and.. set the initial positions of sprocket and cam wheels.

I use the method for loosening the crank pulley lock bolt by bracing the breaker bar against the AC compresso and "tapping" the starter.
