I'm replacing the water pump on 1993 Escort 1.9L engine. I'm following
the Haynes manual procedure. I'm to the point of needing to remove the
crankshaft damper. The manual says to remove the flywheel/driveplate
inspection cover to wedge a large screwdriver into the
flywheel/driveplate ring gear teeth to keep the crankshaft from turning
when you remove the damper bolt.
Where is the inspection cover? Is there another way to keep the
crankshaft from turning to be able to remove the damper bolt? The car
is manual transmission.
Re: How to remove crankshaft damper bolt?
The easiest way is with an impact wrench. If you have no forementioned
item put it in gear and set the parking brake. This will hold the crank
to the clutch to the trans to the axle shafts to the wheels to the
ground the old escort sits on :) Why do you have to remove the damper,
is that ferd like a honda with the pump under the belt cover? hmmmm.
please note: when replacing timing belt on hondas, replace water pump at
same time.......or visy versy.......
