    If it is a 1600 then you put a screwdriver in the slot at the back of the pulley and lock it against a screw head.

    Never really thought about the impaled screwdriver.........missing a couple of fingers, a good possiblity....but screwdriver, no.

    Perhaps a phillips head screwdriver would be better? o_O

    Possibly, …….it would leave a neater entry wound requiring less stitches…...

    Have seen the generator shaft bent doing that and the clown that tried it got a broken little finger for his trouble, I just had a good giggle (under my breath) as I walked him over the road to the medical centre. :rolleyes:

    at least the kombi might fare better with that trick than what some of us do to get things off :D:oops:
