if ya get the socket/breaker bar on the bolt....and laythe breaker bar over across the front so the handle is resting on the frame where the battery mount is
and ya take the 'IGN' fuse out(i dont but.....
) and ya give the key just ONE lil bump...as in ONE short sharp shock, dig it????
the starter will spin the motor...the breaker bar will keep the bolt from spinning and the bolt will break free and you can just spin it right out, thank you very much
DO THIS AT YOU OWN RISK AND DONT COME TO ME CRYIN IF YA **** IT UP AND BREAK $OMETING EXPEN$IVE
i didnt come up with this but it DOES work...done it more than once
AND DO NOT LOSE THE WODRUFF KEY
thats exactly how i got the pully off my engine and off my 2001 Xterra when i did the timing belt on it as well. works like a charm. if you dont want to use a frame rail, the ground works too.
