Changing my timing belts, and the pulse key. Cant get the drive gear bold off. Is it a left-handed bolt? Any ideas of loosening it. I've even put an impact gun on it with no luck.

What model you referring to,nothing needs to actually Come off. But one pg,just loosen the idlers and on 1500 one pg needs to rotate but the other needs to be taken off

I have a 1500 GL. '89 version. I need to take it off because I am changing the pulse wheel to advance the timing.

Yeah, I still have the port belt on, and I did use a 3/8 impact gun. It was all I would fit in behind the front wheel. Even used a 3' breaker bar. No luck.

Did you have a good strong battery on that impact tool...??? That is important...!!

We have never had one that couldn't be loosened with an impact tool...!!

When I come across a stubborn bolt/nut like that ..... I get my long handle on it support the the socket(helper) and then I whack the long handle with a 4X4 . The shock/impact normally will git r dun . Though I would have expected a full charged impact to take care of this.

I'm using a pneumatic 3/8" tool. It may not have enough torque. I cant get past the front wheel with the 1/2" gun.

I have always had better results with a long bar and even steady pull than with an impact, especialy if the last person used loctite on the thread!

In his first post, he asked about the rotation. I will word it better...
Should the bolt be turned "clockwise" or "counter-clockwise"?

Doesn't the 1500 rotate the opposite direction of the 4 cylinder models?

I have been trying turning counterclockwise. I am concerned that it should be turned clockwise.

I gotta ask,why are you changing the degree wheel,I recall there was some king of stumble in the earlier 2500 but i thought that it had other fixeses ?
If you could get to it with one of the hammer impacts,it might work,what I have done on some difficult bolts on John Deere stuff is take a chisel and hammer to the nut,will ruin it but you need it off,just make a start on the nut and hammer on it in the direction it goes.

I want to change that wheel because it stumbles right after 2000 RPM. All my reading pointed me toward having the timing a little bit more advanced which is what the pulse wheel does. But, as a part of this thread, I’ve heard some people that have told me that it’s not working that well
