Just use the aluminum pulley. Stock cranks are extra viscous before they get shaved during the balancing experience. Once it's shaved, it's nice and smooth and the oil can make it slicker. Since you have the Stage 2 balanced crank you don't need the extra rotating weight.
Well what about what faeflora said ^^ Thats the only reason I believe I can run the UDP. But as of now more people are telling me thats a no no and as of now I will be running stock harmonic balancer. I am Hardheaded I know. =]

He's making fun of you. Its a joke from him to you.

EDIT: I'm serious here...no sarcasm at all...he's making fun of the fact that you can't listen worth ****.

I can not understand the fact that you do not pull the pulley regardless if you ordered parts or not. That is retarded.

You diagnose a problem, then get the parts you need to fix it.

Would you pull the damn pulley and see what is going on? How hard is that?

I'm also confused at that. You figure out for sure what is up, then you order parts. You don't just shotgun parts at it randomly. Which is what it seems like your plan was/is.

You seem to slowly but surely be making forward progress here. So it's not all bad. But you need to learn to take advice.

Ok, I went to take the bolt off but I couldn't get it off for the life of me. The guy before me put loctite on it. I put an impact gun to it also and nothing. So i'm gonna have a mechanic/buddy come over tomorrow and try to help me pull this off. When I replace the pulley boss, is a timing job necessary?

I'd suggest you REPLACE THE ENTIRE CRANK PULLEY and all parts associated. Not just the boss...the entire assembly. All of the stuff in this picture needs to be new.

I bet if you put a 10 foot long pipe on socket wrench, something will happen.

My face after reading this thread.


You've gotta be ******* kidding me.
I'm sure this has been repeated but replace everything you're taking apart so you don't tear it apart again sooner than you have to.
FYI loctite fix on my 1.6 held together for about a year before my crank pulley fell off going into work.

Now what would be funny is if you take the nose off and everything is perfectly fine.

Heh sorry.

put long breaker bar on crank pully, have breaker bar against ground beneath car, hit the starter once or twice quickly, drink beer, get bitches.

How the hell did you get an impact gun on there????
I take mine off by placing the car in 6th with the e-brake on, then use a 1/2" ratchet with breaker bar.

If you remove your radiator (and intercooler), then you can get an impact on it with a long extension through the front of the car.

After making brackets that work the same as the flyin miata one, I put them on the shelf and have done it many, many times this way. (Thanks Paul)

Use the "rope trick" to re-torque.
