Like this?

The original Volvo one is slightly different (engages only top half of balancer pulley not all of it like this version).

That link looks interesting.

For what it may be worth I bought the genuine Volvo tool in August 2010 from a Volvo dealer in or near Colchester. My note is:

Crankshaft Pulley Tool
Part number 9995284
29.60 plus VAT.
From Sweden ... two working days.

If I were looking for one now I would try FRF Volvo dealer parts department in Swansea. 01792 790066 or 01792 784272 - Quoting discount code: C3.
I find they give an excellent postal or courier service at sensible prices and other forum members speak well of them. Oh and their courier (Interlink) give a two hour delivery time slot.

I think the tool is well worth buying especiallyif one is keeping the car. And I guess it will have a second hand value in due course. But the more experienced forum members have ways of doing the job without the tool. There's a list of techniques in a post somewhere in the forum.

5) Rope trick - feed string into a plug hole, wind crank so that the piston is locked. Remove string afterwards!
6) Cheat - cut slit in lower plastic cover so that you can remove it, leaving the pulley in situ.

It's on the 700/900 section.

Definitely NO GO...
2) big socket on nut, wedge long breaker bar against the chassis, give a quick flick of the starter motor
3) Put in 4th gear, handbrake on, try turning breaker bar by hand, or giving it a wack with a hammer

But realize it took me with my limited skills in welding to make below in half an hour. Luckily we had some suitable sizes of metal in the trashbin.

According to 'legend' the reason for the special crank holder is because the B2XX series engines (and others) have cast, rather than forged crankshafts.

I don't know of anyone who has actually snapped one using an impact wrench on the pulley nut, but it is a risk - alledgedly!

People might want to consider carefully before buying the IPD tool https://www.ipdusa.com/products/7988...lder-tool-b230 It might be good but someone thinks otherwise. My attention has been drawn to this thread http://volvoforums.com/forum/volvo-2...-holder-46753/ where that IPD tool is shown as twisting in use.

I can't assess alternative tools made as a hobby or home made. They seem to be enthusiast made so are probably good, especially IF the one being sold has product liability insurance. I can say that the genuine Volvo tool is a finely made tough lump a thing of beauty and a joy to behold, doubtless relied on in Volvo dealer workshops throughout the world.

As for alternative methods, I respect the more experienced members who do not use a crankshaft pulley holding tool. I do wonder how they tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt correctly. I see in the secnd link above that someone tightens with a torque wrench relying on the timing belt to hold the crankshaft. How will that work? I doubt if the belt can hold that force? I found the belt could not hold the force to undo the small nuts holding the other pulleys. The crankshaft pulley tightening is torque plus degrees and I use a one metre long handle on a socket to tighten it correctly.




My spare real thing genuine tool was quickly sold to the first person who contacted me. Thanks.

If you can check the postage/shipping costs I can lend you one; but it's a heavy lump of metal so could be quite expensive.
