crank pulley quick relase?

Hello, I new here from Hong Kong

I'm taking my car to racing but I have a problem, the crank pulley is nearly impossible to remove & put it in if I only use simple tools I can bring to circuit, it will be a huge trouble if I get any thing wrong when I need to remove the crank or oil pump, e.g. after remove the head, I need to put the timming chain to the right place.

any parts that allowed to remove the pulley easily?

Hi ya

It sound abit special,
depending on what your running off the crank pulley I would say you have a few options
If you are not running an alternator and your running total loss as some race cars do, get an electric water pump and just use a blanking sleeve for the end of the crank ditch the pulley all together, Just get the crank balanced with the sleeve and clutch that way there is no pulley to remove

Failing that you could get something like an alta crank pulley check the fit if it's ok good if not get it machined out but a few tenths of an inch so it's a nice hand fit and then get a slot put the end of the crank and pulley so you have a slot then use a locking washer. You do not want the pulley slipping or spinning on the crank this will damage your oil pump, this is why they are an interference fit.

Hope this helps
