REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 through 7
- Remove the drive belts from the crankshaft damper.
- Remove the crankshaft damper-to-crankshaft bolt. Hold the crankshaft stationary by placing a suitable tool in the ring gear teeth on the flywheel.
- Remove the crankshaft damper from the crankshaft by pulling it straight off the shaft. A puller may be required to remove the damper from the shaft. Be careful not to lose the woodruff key when removing the crankshaft damper.
If working on a VE30DE or VQ30DE engine, it would be a good idea to replace the crankshaft oil seal when the crankshaft damper is removed.
Install the crankshaft damper onto the shaft, making sure the woodruff key is in place. Dip the damper bolt in fresh oil and torque the crankshaft damper-to-crankshaft bolt to the following specifications:
VG30E engine-90-98 ft.lbs. (123-132 Nm.)
- Install the drive belts to the crankshaft damper; be sure to properly set belt tension.
