UNORTHODOX STREET CRANK PULLY

Postby MR. LEADFOOT » Tue Aug 10, 2004 7:01 pm

A few week ago I installed a unorthodox crank pully (3.lbs less than stock)
on my st165. This is a nice and easy mod but it took two people. one to stand on the brake and one to bust the crank nut loose. Took about 20min.
Tools you will need: gear puller, 15mm socket (I think it was) and one
homeboy to step on the brake.
Out come of this mod: to me it seems to use more of the mortor than the turbo. And the turbo spool up faster you can feel it more on the high end.
It took a days or two to realy notice the differance.
FYI


oh yah. glade things are back to norm.

Keep an eye on your oil in upcoming changes bro - those undampened crank pulleys are famous for taking out main bearings.

The damage to these bearings (10k miles) was attributed to a UR pulley:

Here is an article worth reading:

Just say NO to lightweight/undampened pulleys.

That thing so many people call a "balancer" in most cases is not there for balancing at all (some Chevy engines are externally balanced and use a counter-weight on the dampener and on the flywheel/flexplate, i'm not sure how many other engines do the same). It is really a _dampener_, to dampen the harmonics in the crankshaft.

How well the crank is balanced has nothing to do with the need for a dampener.

Use an impact gun to get the pulley off it should be much easier.

I agree. Used to love the starter method on my 2 old 22r powered pickups. So many non quality breaker bars lost due to starter method. :D
Have since steped up to an impact gun.
