    Hi All

    Unfortunately while on a run before Christmas the crankshaft damper ‘let go’ and the rubber separated. After dismantling the radiator, steering rack , and other associated items, I am left with trying to get the crankshaft nut off which is putting up some resistance!

    Question -is there a lock washer on the shaft or am I missing something!

    Many thank, and a Happy New Year!

    Hi Simon, There is a keyed washer behind the nut. To arrest rotation of the crankshaft I usually position a steel bar between two slave bolts in the crankshaft pulley to react against the chassis. You can then use a suitable socket to undo the nut which is right hand thread b.t.w.

    Good luck.

    Dave.

    Dear All,

    Having failed to remove the offending nut by using various means, including air guns! I have given up and need to tow the car to the local garage.

    Does anyone have any tips on the best place to attach a tow rope.

    Any ideas would be use full

    Many thanks

    Simon
