remove the crank shaft pulley nut so i can get the bottom part of the timing cover off?? haynes just says "remove crank shaft pulley nut and withdraw pulley". BULLSHIT! hehe that is a *huge* nut, hasnt been removed for 30 years, and is attached to something that is built to *turn*. any suggestions would be invaluable.

cheers

If you have clearance, go buy the big impact socket and use the airgun. It is even worth pulling the radiator to use this option.

If not, put the car in low gear and chock the wheels or back the car up against a wall. This will stop the engine from turning. Now put a breaker bar w/ socket on the nut, angled out the engine bay. Slide a 2' piece of pipe over the end for leverage. Pull like hell!

Any VW shop will have a flywheel lock for aircooled VW's for about $5-$7 US it bolts up to one of the starter bolts and works like a champ a very worth while tool......Marty....

Rear bumper mounting bracket from a 70-72 '02.

The threaded inserts get busted out and then you have a nice, heavy angled bracket with pre-drilled holes.

One end gets bolted to the block by the bell-housing mounting bolt, the other end gets bolted with one of the clutch mounting bolts.

Just be sure to use one of your many spare M8 bolts when doing this. No sense in buggering up your good hardware.
