They're done up to quite a high torque IIRQ, so there's no way it will come undone if you're just turning the crank. Never had an issue myself with turning the crank nut when changing a Lampredi engine timing belt.

I haven't took the belt off yet so i can do it under the load of the belt hopefully just need to know which is the correct way to undo so I don't loose any knuckles.

Sorted now removed with impact gun and removes the conventional way anticlockwise.
Cheers Chas for the reply.

Did you actually want to take the crank pulley off to change the timing belt? The belt can be changed without having to do this!

I did but it looked very tight to fit didn't want to risk kinking the new belt especially with 145000 miles on the clock and its still running sweet. Only cost £8 for the 38mm socket so it was worth the hassle. Thanks anyway for your quick response.

No worries! I've changed timing belts on my N/A Lampredi lumps and also on UT lumps without removing the crank pulley. Slide them in at the right angle and they go straight on. Still, whatever works best for you cheers
