Re: [DMCForum] Removal of Timing Pulley

Well I managed to remove the crankshaft pulley.  One thing I've learned, 
you must use heat as suggested before.  When I was trying to remove the 
nut without applying heat, because of the locktite used, it fused the 
nut to the pulley and the pulley spun with the nut which destroyed the 
pulley by enlarging the key slot.  To answer all questions about the 
size, I measured the nut flat to flat and it measured to 1.378" exactly, 
or exactly 35 mm.

I also failed to mention that I did find the evidence of water in my 
oil.  Basically I'm probably going to pull the engine and do a good 
rebuild.  After I clean up the heads I'll have it examined for warpage, 
then decide from there which way to go.
