Right hand. It's got a lot of torque so I get then loose by using an extra long breaker bar and bumping the starter. Just make sure you've got it braced against something solid (like the ground or driveway etc.) because you don't want it slipping and tearing something up.

This can be quite a job depending on the year of the vehicle. If it's an older vehicle things are a lot easier. Basically, you have to remove everything from the front of the engine so you can get at the harmonic balancer. If you are real lucky you may get by with just removing all the belts. On some vehicles you can get at the harmonic balancer from underneath the car or truck. One way or the other, you have to be able to get at the harmonic balancer. There is a 5/8" bolt in the middle of the balancer. Remove it and use a harmonic balancer puller to remove the balancer. At this point you can see the seal that the snout of the balancer went through. You need a seal removal tool to get the old seal out. Most rental places will have both the harmonic balancer puller and the seal removal tool if you don't. Get the old seal out. Now, take the new seal out of it's package and use a little motor oil on your finger to lube the rubber on the new seal. Put the new seal in using a hammer to tap it into place. This can be a little easier said than done sometimes. Use care not to damage the new seal. Try to get it lined up evenly and just tap it in a circular pattern to get it started. Once you have the new seal in... take a look at the snout of the harmonic balancer and make sure there is not a groove in it from the old seal. If there is one, head to your local auto parts store and grab a harmonic balancer repair sleeve. If all is well you need to use the balancer tool to put the balancer back on. Most balancer tools double as a remover and installer. Make sure you have the key on the crankshaft snout and the groove in the balancer lined up. Once you have the balancer back in place put the 5/8" bolt and washer back in. Use a torque wrench and tighten it to factory specs. If my memory serves me correctly it's 65 ft. lbs. on a chevy. But don't rely on my memory. Now just put everything back on the engine and you're back on the road. This may be a job for a mechanic if you have never done anything like this before. But, it's an expensive job. It's also a good learning experience to do it yourself and save several hundred bucks. The seal itself should be under $20.00 Take pictures of the front of the engine as you remove things. Better yet, get a buddy to video record as you go. It will be a big help when it comes to putting it back together. Also, label everything you can. It's usually a lot harder putting back together than it was taking apart. I would plan on making a weekend of it. Good luck, Guy

If it is a 2.8 or a 3.1, the crank shaft position sensor is located under the rear exhaust manifold, right above the transmission housing. Its a small sensor with a 8mm screw holding it in place. Be careful pulling it out, the are known to break off in the block housing. Then the fun really begins to get it out. If its a 3.3, or a 3.8, it is located under the harmonic balancer. You can take the sensor off without taking the harmonic off, but it is ultimately easier to take the harmonic off because you have to adjust the sensor to the timing ring on the harmonic. Its easier to do when its apart.

Harmonic progressions is formed by taking the reciprocals of an arithmetic progression. So if you start with some number a, and add a common difference d each time, the arithmetic progression would be a, a+d, a+2d, a+3d etc. The harmonic progression comes from taking the reciprocals of these terms. So we have a, a/(1+d), a/(1+2d), a/( 1+3d)... Here is a harmonic progression: 1/6, 1/4, 1/3, ....

My guess is yes. I tried taking mine off by holding the retainer nut and turning the 18mm hose nut with an 18mm flare nut wrench to the left and the craftsman wrench broke. So I'm assuming it must be a left handed thread. Perhaps someone with more experience will know for sure.

This is easy job, and very difficult at the same time. In general, you just remove the serpentine belt, remove the coil pack if located over the belt for wrench clearance, use a large (approx 15/16 inch I think) socket and breaker bar, remove center bolt, pull off the old balancer, and install new, torque to approx 135 foot-pounds. However..... the old bolt may be seriously overtightened from the factory, and restraining the old balancer from turning takes a HUGE strap wrench. The balancer bolt on my 87 Park Ave took approx 250-300 foot-pounds torque to loosen it. Wow. Forces here can be large, and serious injury can result. You might consider taking to a shop-- this job can get ugly.

Weaving is used to create textiles by taking two threads and joining them at right angles. Depending on the type of threads, the cloth created can be used for many things, including rugs, art work or clothing.

Processes do not execute, it is the threads within a process that actually execute. All processes have at least one thread of execution, the main thread. If the main thread falls from scope, the process ends, taking all threads with it. This can lead to undefined behaviour if the threads are not terminated gracefully from within the main thread before it falls from scope.

Yes, if you are taking golf fairly seriously then you should have the right golf clubs and also to find out if you are right/left handed. Example: My husband is 6' 6" tall and although right-handed in everything he does he golfs much better left-handed. He has also bought golf clubs that suit his height.

It's a real pain in the neck. You have to remove your timing belt cover, and fan belts just to get to the pump bolts. Once you get all of that off then you can get to the pump. You'll have to remove the pump pulley before you can remove it. I'd suggest you loosen the bolts holding the pulley on before you take anything else loose. Once you have them loose, you can proceed with taking the belts off and then all of the timing cover bolts and the harmonic balancer. Of course you know to drain the radiator before you start. The big bolt on the harmonic balancer is a 17mm in case you're wondering. That is if you have the 1.3 four cylinder. This is if you have the 1.0 three cylinder. Unload alternator. Remove crank pulley from underneath. Remove timing belt cover. Remove timing belt. I've read that this is an interference design engine. Putting the timing belt on wrong could slam the valves into the pistons when you start it. This is a great time to replace the timing belt

If it has threads on the top, you refill it like any other tank by taking it to a sporting goods store or paintball field. If it does not, then it is a disposable, and you cannot refill it.

Yes. On a left handers approach your final step is with your right foot which opens your body up to hit and follow through with your left hand. So a righty using a LH approach is taking away power and hitting options.

To replace the crank sensor you have to remove the harmonic balance taking special attention not to damage the pulley or the cam shaft. Remove the two 10mm retaining screws

Good costumer service primarily having an excellent eye for details, such as: taking good customer measurements for the costume and noticing such things as loose threads (then tightening them up, of course).
