I need to change the timing chain of my 1984 C31 Laurels L24S engine. Therefore I have to remove the front engine cover. To undo it, I have to remove the crank shaft pulley first. It ist held by the screw that is bolted in the crank shafts front end and also holds the oil pump pinion and the timing chain sprocket.
I think, to unscrew it I have to turn it counter clockwise. But of course, instead of undoing the screw, I turn over the engine the wrong way.
I also have tried to put the manual transmission into first gear and block the wheels, but then it feels like the clutch is slipping.
Does anyone have a tip, how I can undo this screw or how I can stop the engine from turning?
