I've read on here that it is a sod to undo the crankshaft bolt.


Have just tried mine and would agree with that statement!!!


Just occured to me.  Does anyone know, does the crankshaft bolt undo clockwise or anti-clockwise ie is it left or right handed thread.


I have bought the necessary tools but still stuck.


I think I will shear the 1/2" socket extensions before it  undoes.


Any help really welcomed.

Jon G got his off by putting the tool on the bolt with the handle resting on the floor and then giving the ignition key a very quick turn.
