Subject: Re: Removing crankshaft pulley bolt

Nothing special required except *lots* of torque! This is normally a two-person job: Remove the cover over the flywheel, and have person #1 hold a large flat-blade screwdriver into the ring gear and against the transmission housing, to immobilize the engine. Then, person #2 uses a large breaker bar (24") and possibly a piece of pipe, to break loose the crankshaft bolt (it's a normal thread). Once it's broken loose, it should come out quite easily.
