M104 crank lock tool

95 e320

Anyone have a part number for the Mercedes crank tool or have used a universal flywheel lock tool to remove the crank pulley bolt? Any ideas appreciated. But Iím not going to use the starter method with the engine torn apart. I need to change the timing chain and guides

This should work - https://www.amazon.com/Mercedes-Benz-Flywheel-Locking-Tool/dp/B00RJNGVU4/ref=pd_aw_sbs_236_3/137-9024819-6883838?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00RJNGVU4&pd_rd_r=6363677a-3e2d-11e9-9500-39d562a2f7fe&pd_rd_w=3mc2L&pd_rd_wg=STvZh&pf_rd_p=aae79475-6dc9-4a12-80e8-27b63108fa72&pf_rd_r=59JNGPSSPB8T050AFR84&psc=1&refRID=59JNGPSSPB8T050AFR84

It requires the ring gear in place as does going through the starter hole.

How do you set proper torque with an impact wrench?

You can hold the flywheel with a piece of wood to get her to torque up. Add some blue loctite and you will Never, Ever have a problem. I've lost count of the harmonic bolts I've done over the last 15 plus years. No locking tool, No problem

I donít have the head on.. would the impact wrench produce enough torque to zip off the bolt without the head?

As Jono said, with an impact wrench, minimal retention of the pulley/damper will allow the torque wrench to remove the bolt.

How high does your compressor go?


Not to say I officially encourage this, but you can hold the pressure switch closed and typically run them up a Lot higher. Amazing what another 40-50 psi will do for you. Make sure you have a fresh few drops of oil in the gun as well ..helps!

Oh...well, idk if that would ever really have enough ass ...

I'll run the compressor up to 185-200 psi when I have a stubborn nut/bolt what have you. We run at 150-160 normally. I'd wager that double your air pressure would likely do the trick.

I found the harbor freight 1000 lb/ft electric impact will remove the most stubborn of fasteners if you have the space to use it.
