Been working on my '90 Jetta and for the life of me I can't get the crankshaft pulley bolt undone. The 4 allen head bolts were rusted to hell and had to be drilled out, identical to the issues I had with changing the water pump pulley.
I have to put a plug in here for the Drill-Out type screw and bolt extractors from Alden - http://www.google.com/products...tle#p They actually WORK!
Anyway, does anyone know for sure one way or the other if its a regular right hand thread or is it reversed? I've applied PB Blaster! liberally, tried heat, an impact wrench, even cranking the starter with the johnson bar on the frame, it just won't come loose.
Anyone been thru this rodeo before?
