How do you take the crank pulley off?

HOW DO YOU DO IT!?!?!?!? I've gone through 2 ratchets so far (they busted) and no luck. I can't get it off. Is there a special tool to use for this?

crank pulley

to get the pulley off your were doing it rite by trying to get the big nut off. they usually are really tight you need to get a real long 1/2 inch breaker to get it loose even then it can still be a pain

Ok, so I got that off. What about the cam pulleys? I broke 2 wrenches, 1 socket, 1 ratcet, and a partrage in a pear tree. No, but seriously, I can't get those off at all. I used a 4 FOOT breaker bar!!!:cry:

I hope you are using Craftsman tools or some other brand with a lifetime guarantee.

Over on pirate I read that the easiest way is to set up a breaker bar against the left framerail and blip the starter to start the nut off.

Edit: I have no idea about the cam pulley nuts, sorry.

You can put a breaker bar against the frame rail and blip the starter. Works like a charm. Just make sure the ignition is disabled. Remove the coil wire or something.

Oly884--How'd you end up doing it? I think I'm in a similar predicament. Did you do the blip starter thing?

Have fun all.

Maybe the reply is a bit late but here is the solution for your problem with those sticky camshaft bolts. You'll have to use a paint stripper and heat the bolt the first time you'll remove the bolts. Or just use a lot of force.
Toyota uses Loctite on those bolts and this glues secures them to the crank or camshaft. Once removed you'll see a red or green material aplied to the bolts.
This stuff is heat proof up to just above the boiling temp of water.
So heat m up but replace your seals incase you overdid it.

Well I got it off a long time ago, but I ended up sticking a wrench in the lobes on the cam and then proping it up on the side of the head, and broke a nice chunck off of the head, didn't matter though, I had a new engine. I did how ever heat it up untill it was glowing red and then spray it with wd-40
