Crank bolt

I have a 98 Camaro with the 3.8L and I want to do my timing chain but I'm told the crank bolt is a tty. I went to Chevy and found out the bolt is discontinued. Anyone have any idea where Ivan get a new bolt?

It has been discontinued I guess.

From other spots that I'm reading, it can be reused if absolutely necessary. Just use a lot of red lock-tite and torque it appropriately!

Here's the part #, took awhile to hunt it down: GM stock # 24506341

Heres a website that has it listed, don't know if they actually have it in stock: LINK

I can put that bolt into cart but that's as far as it will let me go. Anyone ever have to take the crank bolt off? If so what did you use to put the crank back on?

As long as the crank snout is threaded enough to keep the longer bolt from bottoming out before being tight it would work. On ls1's it is actually recommended to buy a longer crank bolt

FWD bolt won't work unless you also use a thick washer/spacer.

I used a tool you rent at autozone to install the balancer. Easy stuff.

I read that arp might have the bolt but not sure what the part number is. How thick would the washer have to be for that bolt to fit?

Where can I get the flywheel locking tool or is there an easier way of removing the crank bolt without removing the starter and lower bellhousing panel?
