Hey guys i just bought 150 dollars worth of tools just to get that darn harmonic balancer bolt off and i thought I would try to get some of my money back by loaning out that tools to people who would like to do their own timing job but don't have the proper tools to do it them self. So heres your answer, I have a Craftsman 3/4 inch drive 18'' long breaker bar, a 16, 10, 5 and 3 inch extension, the 17 mm socket , and the harmonic holder tool to keep it still while your cranking down on that bolt. It got my bolt off in less that 10 seconds and it was almost effortless. If your interested all you pay is shipping and 15 dollars to use the tools. I'll ship it how ever you want as long as your willing to pay for it. Hopefully everyone is honest and i wont have any problems with people shipping them back to me in a timely manner. Here's a picture of the tools:

Dude dont do this what so ever. Even if it worked for a while there would be some shady person who wouldnt ship them back. I got over 10k in tools impacts compressors etc and unless its one of 5 best friends i dont let anybody borrow a single wrench. I used to let people, but i got tired if not getting stuff back or it taking months to then when i get it back its rusted up or something.

Yea, just sell them on craigslist locally or hang on to them. Plus, you should've gotten the impact grade 16" extension too if you really intended on renting these out... that one there would've lasted maybe 1 or 2 loans. I broke 3 of those regular cheap ones getting my bolt off, and if I had been using that breaker bar, probably would have snapped that too.

Lol ok ok I get it I guess I'm just to trusting. Yeah I got like 2 grand in tools and these are the ones I use once every 100,000 miles. I'll hold on to them. And breaking that breaker bar? I had a 6 foot long piece of pipe on it and was really pulling on it and it held up fine haha! I have another breaker bar coming in, the company I bought it from 2 weeks ago used the slowest shipping in the world and it's still not here. If anyone's intrested I'm selling it for 25 plus shipping. I ended up going to sears and dropping 55 bucks on the breaker bar in the picture.
