Freelander stud stuck


Recommended Posts

early Y reg Freelander.

Any bright ideas on how to get the bottom pulley off, the stud into the crank just won't budge! I can't use heat for obvious reasons, and so far have tried withou anty luck with a half inch airgun, the torque settings are 100mn + 60 degrees + 60 degrees with thred lock when it's put on, thats mega tight!!!

should I use a bigger air gun and risk snapping it off?

anyone else ever taken one out sucessfully, I'd be interested to know how you did it

You can use the starter motor to undo the crank bolt in the same way as you can with Defender and Disco's.

Otherwise - lock the flywheel as shown in this thread -



Thanks for the responce, I locked the fly wheel and stepped up a gear and used an inch airgun on it, bingo out she came.....

cheers for the advice, I never thought it would be that hard to shift
