2.25 petrol crank bolt


Recommended Posts


Can someone tell me what size socket I need to use in order to remove the crank bolt from a 2.25 series petrol engine?

Can someone also tell me in which direction this will undo?

Does anyone near Swindon have such a socket that I could borrow briefly?


Ant. :unsure:

Well, I guess that a petrol is indeed different to a diesel as my lovely brand new 41mm deep impact socket doesn't quite fit. Maybe it's actually 42mm. Can't buy that though until I've sold the 41mm socket. Any takers?

>> Erm won't it be imperial rather than metric?

Well, I did wonder, but followed Tonk's advice.

>> Has yours got the starter dog on it Ant?

Unortunately yes. If yours won't fit, I'll grind the damn starter dog bit off and buy a new bolt for when it goes back together.
