View Full Version : crank bolt

I have a m20 motor in a 2002 and I have a problem clearing my rad. the bolt has a 2 inch head. Is it possible to cut the bolt head a few inches? Will this affect the crank balance? Let me know... I checked for a replacement bolt but I havent found anything.

If its just a bolt head, i dont see any reason why you couldnt shorten it. It wouldnt throw off the balance, being so little weight, right exactly on the center of rotation.

The bolt won't clear the rad or the fan? If it's the fan why not just get a slim fan?
