If you need help I can send you my socket for this repair...Where are you locatedDoes anybody know what socket it takes to remove the harmonic balancer, so I can get to the water pump bolt. This is a 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, 2WD, 6.6 duramax diesel.:help
Really? What kind of impact and socket did you have? I pulled the radiator and my Ingersol fit fine with a Snap-On socket.X2 on that. if you get get it in there. but you will have to USE A 3/4" DRIVE breaker bar to get her loose if you cant get the gun in there. i couldnt get the gun in there unless i took the radiator out and the intercooler.
IGN 1 is the fuse you need to pull to keep the engine from firing.
Thanks for the fuse info...
I really like the flywheel tool that comes with the socket.
Leave the starter in... leave the radiator in... break the bolt loose with out torch and tighten bolt properly. If you break the bolt loose with the motor how do you get it tight again? Turn the motor over backwards?...Last time I tried to hit a bar and socket setup with a big hammer it didn't go so well.
all you have to do is reverse the polarity on the starte and the motor will turn backwards, duh.The flywheel lock tool is so slick... once you use it and a breaker bar on the dampner you would never want to do it any other way. Saves enough time to pay for itself.
