i didn't get this bolt because i got the pulleys used. It says on their website that its 12mm by 60mm. I got a 12 by 70 and a 12 by 50. will either of these work. I know i dont have to tighten it very much, as its just a starter, but will either of the ones i got work? I also have a puller and some high temp sealant but no breaker bar, do i need one? thanx in advance

The long bolt with the kit is to start pulling the pulley back on the crank. As long as the thread rate is the same, I would think it is ok. A breaker bar will come in handy when trying to get the crank bolt off and tightening it down.

once you get the pulley on, take the long bolt out and use the stock crank pulley bolt. i reused mine, it's fine. torque that bolt down to specs. the torque spec is on steeda's website, check it out. hope this helps.

I've heard that too. That being said, I used the stock one over again. Don't forget your dab of RTV in the keyway :cool:

ditto, don't forget the silicone and the washer!
