The M3 features a wide-body, so the exterior body pieces are almost all different. There is likely a faulty component. The hole for the locking pin should be then more or less in line. Blocks are cast so the measurements are loose at best. Once you figure out what is missing, it will be easier to diagnose. The pin looks like this Sorry can't remember the actual dimensions, but the very front smaller bit of the pin goes into the flywheel.
Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799. Mileage is now at 124000 kays. Im gonna use Arrow connecting rods at 135 mm and custom M3 pistons made at 86mm. Release the tensioner and recheck that the belt is properly aligned. It will have the procedure, special tools and torque specs.

Before on other cars I have clambered underneath them or from inside the engine bay and found some way to mechanically lock the flywheel. You only need the long crank holder bar. Once the belt is properly installed on all accessories, release the tensioner as described earlier and slide the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Wood is not going to cut it, as wood will flex, dent, and as you have seen break.
Most models also use a torque-to-yield bolt to retain the crank pulley. Check spark, fuel injector pulse and fuel pressure, volume, quality and engine compression. Hey guys, i have been doing endless and endless hours of research on how to make my M42 a stroker and a supercharger application. Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, hope you'll accept me to your team, and help me navigate through discussions! If your vehicle has cooler lines from the oil filter housing, you may have to remove them. Service history looks good from reputable indie's so i'm told. Oh yeah i want to get the boost kit as well. Before removing the drive belts, mark the direction of rotation if reusing belts and note the installation position.
My suggestion, find out why the belt failed. If you leave the head on at this point, you risk valves hitting pistons when you fit the new crankshaft. Happen just as she was approaching the house.

There are two basic types of crankshaft pulley: those that incorporate a harmonic balancer and those that don't. If no impact wrench, then a breaker bar and a cheater bar over the breaker bar to give even more leverage. Engine needs to be at tdc which can be done by removing the rocker cover and making sure the cam lobes are facing pic 1. I don't have an M50 so I don't know if the crank bolt is reverse threaded, but my guess is that it probably is.
Most of the engines parts are different in order to produce the extra power. I surrended and took the block to a shop, they heated it impacted it, applied some chemical dont know which one and even broke a big rachet wrench and the bolt just dont want to loose. Looking at where that locking pin inserts into a dual mass flywheel I just don't see how it's possible to warp that flywheel. It's normal threaded or inverse like the oil pump nut?

Im getting similar noise but not metallic its more like a dug dug dug at idle. I've had to go through 5 or six blocks to find one suitable for a +.
With the belt removed, inspect the pulleys for lateral play or binding. I would like to share my experience of this job as I searched long and hard to find a good safe method of removing the Jesus Bolt. But I'd be grateful for any pointers or pitfalls people have encountered, if I have a go myself. Any ideas on what I need to replace. I've searched and read a few old posts suggesting that the replacement was done in an hour.
