Super Adhesive

#1

Car is a 1990. Pulley assembly separated from harmonic balancer. What kind of adhesive did Honda use? The replacement is single piece cast. Why did they put the assembly on with 300 lb-ft of torque?


#2

I think you’ll find that the piece was made with rubber sandwiched between the 2 halves. This would have been molded in place with the rubber adhereing to the 2 halves - the rubber itself being adhesive.

The replacement is not a single piece. It’s 3 pieces just like the one you have- 2 halves with rubber in between!

300 ft lbs? To keep the balancer on the crack! You sometimes need lots of torque to make sure the bolt doesn’t come loose!


#3

The bolt was probably frozen on with 20 years of exposure. Maybe also has some lock-tite on the threads.

The proper torque for that balancer is 166 ft-lbs. of torque.

You are trying to get what is left of the balancer off, right?? You will probably need an impact wrench to do it. Then a pulley puller. No room?? You will have to drop the engine cradle to MAKE room…
