2002 duramax crank bolt?

What size socket do I need? Its a 12 point and its big. Replacing the flywheel and that's the only thing holding me up from getting it torn apart.

you do know it is faster to measure the bolt than it is to make a thread on the internet asking what size it is and wait for some dumbass that doesnt have a clue to give you a bullshit answer.

Or I can make a thread and wait for an answer while I work on other cars I have in my shop at the same time. Besides kinda hard to get to the bolt with the fan and shroud in place to measure. So while waiting I got an alignment on a venture done, installed a front ball joint on a BMW and when those were finished, I had my answer on another forum. Worked out for me

x2

but your talking to someone who can build a 4x4 in two weeks and break the front axle in 15 minutes, then repair it again in 10 minutes only to break it again in 15 more minutes.

he is a quick worker for sure.

The breaking the axle part is taking longer then 15 minutes since going one ton though......I'm up to 25 minutes

I work in a shop, so drinking beer and watching porn is out of the question on company time......would be cool though

What bolts?

I do not need to remove the crank bolt (crank bolt is 250 ft lbs to retorque), just turn it to access to the flywheel bolts. I got all the flywheel bolts out using two long 3/8's extensions and a wobble and adapter on my 1/2" impact. Only thing left to do is remove bell housing bolts and hook up trans jack and remove.

isn't there a access plug somewhere on the bellhousing area? that is how they suggest to hold the engine from turning to remove the crank bolt
