How Do I Remove Crankshaft Pully

Is Any One Out There Familiar With The 1940 Plymouth Engine? I Need Information On How To Remove The Crankshaft Pulley On The Flathead 6 Cyl.
My Car Is A P-10 Four Dr. Sedan.
I Need To Remove The Pulley So I Can Remove The Timing Chain Cover And Replace The Gasket.

Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated.

You might want to ask over HERE. They cater to the engines like you have- the flat 6 MOPAR was similar for YEARS.

From what I've gathered, the nut is removed from the front of the crank, then a puller can be used (using the two bolt holes in the hub) to remove the unit.

If you have the hand crank-type pulley nut, the socket size is 1-13/16".

Replace the seal while you're at it- they always seem to leak.

You may not even know that there are original and reprint service manuals available for your Plymouth. Here is one source that I have used for decades with good results.....

This Ply. has two nuts in front of the crankshaft pulley. The
last nut ( which would be the first one to come off ) has a weird configuration, like it might take a special tool to remove it. I am at a loss as how to proceed.
I hope you can shed some more light on this problem.
Thank you for your help.

If it looks something like a big, funky, short corkscrew, that was used for the hand crank. Here's a photo:



The size of the nut behind the hand crank socket is what you want to find a socket for, then use an impact wrench or breaker bar to remove it.

You need to lock the engine from turning to remove the nut if you use a breaker on it. If it's a stick (which I'm guessing it is), just put it into gear, block the wheels and proceed.

If the set-up you have isn't like the one above, it's probably similar to:

How to Remove a crankshaft pulley

Thank you colbalt 327;
After I sent my last reply I realised that the odd looking nut
was for a hand crank. The picture you posted is exactly the same as my engine. Thank you for your help!
I will start the job first thing tomorrow.

Thanks again,
