Timing belt pulley, alternator pulley, which are you talking about.


Take a deep breath and try again.


Are you speaking of the crankcase pulley, the pulley that is physically attached to the alternator, or possibly a third pulley (this is called a tension pulley, but may not be on your motor).

This is probably besides the point, but to remove the crankcase pulley, you need:


1) pulley holder

2) 1/2" drive breaker bar to hold the pulley holder (36" in length)

3) 3/4" drive breaker bar to turn the pulley bolt (36" in length)

4) 19mm socket for the pulley bolt

5) 24" of 3/4" driver extension

6) scissor jack (OEM Honda Equipement from your trunk)


Once you have all this equipment set up, it will take a minimum of pressure to loosen the crankcase pulley bolt. I loosened mine by barely stepping on the breaker bar. The bolt must be re-tightened to 185 ft-lbs, and should NOT be done with an impact driver (per Honda service manual instruction).


I say it might be besides the point since it sounds like you have some other stuff going on there.
