Those things are not cheap. Let me know how much.


What is the best way to remove the damper bolt? I have a 36 mm socket, but I can get the bolt to bust loose.

Yeah, I want to use better head studs. I know there are a lot of people that haven't had any issues with regular ARP studs, but if something bad is going to happen it will happen to me. I am also going to have the block decked. It's probally not necessary, but I can't have my truck down later on for something that I should have done from the get go.

I had her out there helping me last night, but she is to tiny to get enough power to hold the flywheel still.

I like tearing stuff apart by myself. It's the accomplishment feeling.
No this damn bolt is tight. I have a friend that I am going to introduce to the bolt tonight. It's called a torch.

No torch I just went through this with mine, Broke a 1/2 breaker bar and a 3/4 to 1/2 reducer from the impact If you can get the socket in a 3/4 drive and a stout 3/4 impact, it will come off. You could also try the breaker bar method again but smack the head of the bolt a few good times...

Just my .02 on the subject......when I replaced my water pump I bought a 3/4" breaker bar at Habor Freight. Then slide a 60" piece of rigid conduit over the breaker bar......bolt came loose no problem.

I had a 4' piece of metal tubing on a 1' breaker bar standing on it and bouncing up and down and could not break that dam bolt loose The first time I took it off 6 months ago, it came off no problem with a 1/2" impact, but apperantly I got a little carried away with the Red Loctite when I re-installed it
