is the crank bolt left hand threaded

just what the title says, on a 22re in an 86 pickup. I ask because my oil leak is worse and last time I tried this I couldn't get the bolt to break loose. I'd hate to find out that I've been tightening it this whole time.

use an impact gun to break it loose. they are a PITA to break loose by hand, you have to use the starter to break it loose by hand. with a air impact it comes right off.

I used the starter trick to get mine off. Put a breaker bar on the bolt and lay it across the drivers side frame rail. Disconnect and ground the coil, then bump the starter in short intervals. Mine was loose on the first try.

If you go to this website on replacing the timing chain, the first thing they show you is how to get the bolt off the crank using the starter....

I've never had to use a starter to break a crank bolt and I've taken many off... I took one off tonight with the engine on the stand. Though in tonights case I am rebuilding the 22r so i let the timing chain jam on the sprocket.

All you need is the truck in gear (or some way to keep the crank from turning whatever method you use) and a breaker bar and some muscle. I've never seen one so tight it wouldnt come off. Get a longer cheater bar! =)

oh and its threaded normal.
