I have some leaking around the front case of my engine and want to replace the sealing. But got stuck in the process when I got to the front pulley on the crank shaft. How do I remove it?
What tools do I need?

I tried measure the dimensions of the head of the screw, 34 mm. Is that correct?

It’s a Range Rover -73, with 3,5 liter v8.

On a 1973 you should have to remove first the manual crank handle starter dog to get acces to the main bolt.

Then it's 1 and 5/16 inch (33.337mm) sized deep socket to undo the retaining bolt (American originally designed engine was always "AF imperial measurements) once that's out it should pull straight off by hand as it's not fitted on a taper to the crank.

Listed in manual as 140 / 160 lb ft ( 19.3 / 22.3 kg M) so pretty tight!

It's quite a balance mass that front pully and you'd not want it getting loose.
