      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Happy Birthday Automech!

  2. Focus 1.6 Zetec SE Crankshaft Pulley Removal

    Thanks for that Dezwez, I'll try that before anything else, but was that method ok for retightening the nut bearing in mind that there is no key on the shaft?
  3. :( I need to remove the pulley to change the timing belt and I have the correct setting tools. The problem is that the pulley is not the usual one which has cut-outs to use a holding bar. Instead the engine has a double pulley with no slots or bolt holes. I suspect that there is a holding pin which fits in the timing pin hole. Does anyone know if this is so, how to use it, a part number for it, or any other suggestion for removing the pulley, such as removing the starter motor. Because I am working alone I do not want to try holding the flywheel while slackening/tightening the pulley nut. The car is on an 54 plate.
