    Does anyone know where I can buy or borrow one of the 50mm hex socket
    wrenches needed to remove the crankshaft pulley on my CRV?

    I want to replace the timing belt. These tools appear to be like hens-teeth
    to find.

    50 mm is 1.9685 inches so a 2 inch socket would have about 31 thou of
    slop. A 1 &15/16 inch might fit well.

    You can whip one up yourself with a plumbing nipple and a piece of steel
    bar. I'll send you a picture. Plumbing part is described as a 2" pipe
    fitting, like you use to fit a well water hose onto a large tap. Grind
    all 6 faces so it will fit, then weld onto steel bar. Got the idea from
    Chilton's manual #30300 page 3-22 (honda dealer)

    needs to fit internally, not externally, so a normal socket won't do it.

    Ah! He means the tool to hold the pulley! I wouldn't call that a
    socket. Here's a description from the newsgroup FAQ of a homemade one:

    "A list denizen who signs himself "jamieson" offered this suggestion-
    "I did manage to find a nice way to prevent the pulley from turning.
    The local hardware store sells a 1 1/2" threaded plumbing adapter with
    a hex flange on one side of it. With a little bit of filing, the hex
    flange fits into the 50mm hex depression in the crankshaft pulley.
    Then I took a pipe wrench and cranked it down on the plumbing adapter
    threads sticking out of the crankshaft pulley. It works just like the
    Honda crankshaft pulley holder tool, only costs a lot less."

  8. Ebay. They have more than one listed right now. Try finding the tool for
    an Acura 2.5 TL. That is hard to get. I could not find one any where. None
    of the local dealers would order one for me either. I had to improvise to
    get the nut off.

    If you could send me a pic as well, then I can add it to the FAQ. Some time
    ago this guy called "jamieson" described such a thing, but it's difficult
    to understand from the text. A picture sure would be nice.

    I saw a homemade tool on ebay for around $15, looks like it will do the
    search honda crankshaft.
