Aluminum Economy Grade 4CYL Crank Counterhold [EC-1]

Pricing: $63.00


This thick aluminum bar provides the rigid counterhold needed for safe removal and installation of the crank sprocket center bolt. Tool should fit most 4 cylinder water-cooled VW®/Audi® in-line engines that utilize a toothed timing belt and have 4-bolt harmonic balancers (not for 2.0 FSI). Replaces factory tool #3415. Not for engines with main timing chains. This tool is a more economical alternative to the NuYank-4cyl described below and does NOT have a lifetime warranty. If you want a warranty, order the NuYank-4Cyl.

The two ends of the tool have different hole arrangements to allow you to select where the bar will contact a rigid stop (floor, subframe, etc). Comes with 3 high strength bolts and washers. Impact rated to counterhold your use of impact guns or breaker bars to remove the center bolt. Stable enough to use against your torque wrench and extensions for stretch bolts. Precision machined in USA, Metalnerd® brand. A 19mm, 12-point impact grade socket sold separately below.
