I'm going to change my timing belt this weekend and I was looking in my helms manual yesterday. It says to remove the crankshaft pulley....but what I'm wondering is do I really need to? It seems to me that if I loosen the tensioner so I can get the belt off the cam gears I can just remove the belt around the crank pulley without removing the pulley. Or even just cut the old timing belt off with scissors if that won't work.

Am I missing something? I just thought I could save a step because it sounds like getting that crank pulley off can be a pain.

Thanks-

I think for the timing belt cover to come off, you 'll need to remove the pulley.

there are a couple of bolts holding the cover on behind the pully. make sure you have a chain wrench to hold on to the pully or like a 1inch impact that bolt is on there . good luck its a lot harder than it looks in the helms manule. or at least removing that pully

If you do end up using a chain wrench, wrap a rag around the pulley to help minimize the damage.

You should look into gettin a 55mm hex that fits in the crank pulley. This will probably be more effective than a chain wrench. I recommend takin ur teg down to a local shop & have them loosen the crank pulley bolt cuz it's pretty tuff to get it off on ur own.

Or, you can by the tool specifically made to hold the cranks pulley for Hondas. I thinks it's around $50.
