Camry engine repair
My husband needs to remove the Accessory Drive Pulley/Damper of my 93 Camry V6 3VZ-FE to replace the
water pump. While 'inside', he'll replace the idlers & belt & possibly the front oil seals for cams & crank.
He doesn't have access to the special tool that Toyota calls out for holding the pulley while removing the
In the past, he has used an air-impact-wrench to perform this function with only the inertia of the crank & flywheel to prevent rotation. With the airflow reduced, this process appeared rather gentle--a few taps and the
bolt came free.
This nice old Camry has more 'standing' in our family & he therefore has more desire to treat it well and doesn't wish to damage it by doing something stupid.
Comments please on use of impact wrench, and would also appreciate any other suggestions.
