Quote: check out different methods on holding the Harmonic Balancer Puller when loosening and retorqueing. I and several other have made a tool for holding the pulley. If you have the original '89 H.B. still on yours it will be missing the 2 holes in it that the unavaiable dealer or homemade tool fits in. (Sorry, after I ruined my engine by bolt failure, I got a HB off a 91 with "said holes". I got the bolt for like $5 and the washer for $ 3. (beware a dodge dealer ((stealer) here wanted $19 for the bolt. Korum Mitsubishi , on the net, in Wash. state is a good place. I've always been chicken to prybar on the flywheel , but that's cause I'm a chicken, but that is probably the way your gonna do it. There is a fanbelt type wrench in the 89 FSM , but I don't think it would hold easilly and get an acurate torqueing without breaking some knukles. I would recommend you do this 1st, before getting into a bunch of other projects. I live in misery every day for my neglagence of my H.B. bolt.
I guess I am cornfused; what are we talking about here? Does this have to do with the crank bolt or is this a different issue? I did a search and found nothing on the harmonic balancer being an issue. Thanks for the heads up, but I am lost in the context of this whole post.
I got the oil changed tonight and removed some left over wiring that the previous owner left hanging all over. I adjusted the steering box and the steering is much better. I happened upon noticing that there was NO brake fluid in the reservoir! I added some for now and will attempt a one man brake bleed this weekend after I search around for this process and bleeding the clutch fluid too. I will pick up grease and a gun tomorrow and hit the zerts.
I was playing around with the A|C and noticed that the light behind the button comes on if I push the button, but it doesn't stay engaged. We had the A|C working (when the button was held in); we could hear the engine idle up and the air did get noticeably cooler. But now the button is pushed and no engine difference and no cold air. Any Ideas?
I disconnected the washer fluid reservoir or what was left of it, crumbled in my hand as I pulled it out. I noticed the fluid hose goes up to to a "Y" which one end goes to a nozzle and other goes to a firewall connection, which I assume is a plug? Still not sure what is up with the switch to the back yet, gonna have to figure out how to test that.
Wife is intrigued by the whole bouncy seat thing....I noticed that there are bouncy seat frame in the forum classifieds, would those work for both driver and passenger sides? And it's just a swap of frames right? Wanna make mamma happy.
