    I don't know about the diesel, but I know Chevy needs a special tool to install the new one. If you try to pull it on th ecrank withthe bolt, it is VERY easy to strip out the end of the crank. I borrowed the right tool from a local machine shop. They were cool with it, especially since the did my emgine machining.
