I guess I didn't give enough info at first.I'm trying to replace my timing
belt, and to do so, I need to remove center crankshaft pulley bolt.I have
tried 2 1/2 drive airguns with no success.I also had a breaker bar on
it,and was tapping it with a sledgehammer,and I can't get it to break
loose.Is there a trick to it,it isn't a left hand bolt is it.Should it be
on that tight.I don't want
to damage anything.It's also a automatic trans,so
putting it in gear won't help.Thank You
Not sure about the direction. Look at what direction the engine turns
to determine the direction of the threads. It should tighten the bolt
I have had luck in the past holding the flywheel with a screwdriver or
prybar in the starter teeth on flywheel.

I used an air impact wrench with a 24 MM impact socket to break mine
free, it took about 8 shots with my compressor at max to break it, I
have read about others using a breaker bar wedged against the ground
and bumping the starter to break it free.
Sorry for the late reply, I'm sure you have it fixed by now. Took two of us
to get mine loose. One holding a chain wrench around the pully, one with an
inch drive ratchet with a pipe on the end to get it loose. Basically the
same thing to put it back on too to get the torque right.
If I remember correctly, it's standard thread.
