Anybody know what size the crankshaft pulley nut is for an '87 FJ60 2F? It appears to be 44 or 45mm according to my measurments, which is huge! I don't have anything in my toolbox nearly that big and I'm having a problem finding a store in town that has one that big.

All I'm trying to do is turn over the engine to find top dead center on #1. Is there another way to fine turn the engine without a socket? It's inset enough that I can't easily get a crescent on it.

Thanks for any advice.

I'm pretty sure it's a 46mm. &nbsp:Did you try looking for one at Sears? It will probably be a 3/4" drive socket. If you can't find the 46mm, try looking for a standard equivalent. I would do the math for you if I could find my calculator...

I managed to get mine off by inserting the socket and lying the breaker bar on the driver side (I think) frame rail. I then removed the coil wire and quickly bumped the starter. It came off, no problems. Just make sure the socket doesn't slip off.

I use a 1 3/4 inch standard. Or, you can try a monkey (pipe) wrench. That's worked, too. Or, if you are adjusting valves, do it with the engine running, like the manual sayz. :D

Whoops, I didn't read the last paragraph. Well, in case you ever want to remove the big nut, now you know. :D

1 13/16" works on my 75 2F.
don't bother trying sears. i tried last week and they did not have any metric that large. they do carry the 1 13/16 in 3/4 drive. they also have a 1/2 x 3/4 adapter.

to get tdc you can also rock the car with it gear.
