I have been a reader of this forum for a few months now. It has helped me with a whole bunch of DIY's for my 2005.5 Jetta (oil, spark plugs, tranny fluid, filters. etc) It also gave me to bug to start tinkering with the car. (this was my downfall) I installed short shifter, and a tranny mount insert and I have been having a great time driving the car. SO then I purchased a light weight crank pulley and I just attempted to install it. Once I got to the stock pulley I noticed that the bolts were really rusty. I attempted to remove them with hand tools but I could not brake the bolts free. I decided to scrap that attempt figuring that I would use some air tools at my buddy's house tomorrow. I put the car back together and when I went to start her up, no dice.
I did some research (in frantic disbelief and dismay) and I fear that I must have rotated the crank and totally effed the timing chain position.
I am posting here in hope that someone can tell me that I didn't eff up as bad as I think I did.
I always thought about joining the forum... just not for this reason... Derp.
