If not then spanners or grips or weld a nut on or reshape it to a 17.

I found a 12 sided 18mm it gripped well, so hopeful. Have to wait tomorrow get a 6 side.

I've changed the chains a few months ago, engine was out the car and I couldn't torque up the crank pulley bolt...

It's now back in the car, car on 4 wheels..

After a bit of advice to torque it up..
Handbrake on, brake wedged oncar in first and I still seem to be able to turn the pulley and the bolt...

Advice please..

That looks a bit home made?

 

Is there an off the shelf part that does the job? - Lots of people appear to change the chains themsevles and I've never really read about issues relating to tighting the nut back up.. ooo er  :dry:

Thinking about it a bit more, car is on 4 wheels, the driveshafts are in but the hub nuts are not torqued up or even slightly tightened...

I guess to get the resistance of brakes and weight of the car these need to be fully torqued up....?

I can't even get the air gun in there as the engine is now back in the car...

 

Dang - I had a flywheel locking tool aswell to remove the bolt, but I couldn't get anywhere near the torque to tighten it up off the car..

 

I'm thinking to somehow try and wedge something in the pulley, but cant see any obvious location of method of doing this :(

you could push a screwdriver or something in and jam it on the casing.. but i would only use that as a last resort really.

I'm thinking take the starter off, and use the teeth locking tool to grip the flywheel.. seems easier solution I think..

I don't think there's any other access point to the flywheel with gearbox/engine in?...

you can slip a flatheaded screwdriver on the exhaust side, there is a tiny gap between the box and engine.. its fiddly but you can do it from there.. much easier than removing the starter.
