'85 P-type stock
I am getting close to finishing the replacement of all the front seals on my '85 and installing a new timing belt and tensioner. I have been reading that due to stretching, one should use a new crank bolt when reinstalling the harmonic balancer (crank pulley). The reason is that the stretched crank bolt will bottom out in the crankshaft and the crank pulley will be loose causing premature failure. I have looked everywhere and I cannot find a new crank bolt for my '85. The part has been discontinued. Does anybody know where one can find a new crank bolt? As an alternative, could one file down the end of the used bolt so it doesn't bottom out in the crank and allow for the crank pulley to be torqued to 195 ft/lbs? Thanks for sharing your thoughts and knowledge.
