Default can't get the crank pulley off!

It's in 5th gear and my friend is pressing the break...And the crank is still spinning...what the hell?

Is it safe to dw40 the bolt?

I bought myself a UD pulley back in the day...yeah, I had the same problem you are having. I asked lots and lots and the suggestion that worked for me was this:

put the breaker bar on the bolt, downwards against the ground. Just to be on the safe side I pulled out one of the spark plug cables. sit in the car, and click it once and the thing will come right off. I've been driving with my new pulley for a long time now and no problems. No one else who has done this has had any problems either.

btw, WD40 is fine to put on, I did. Put anti-sieze on the bolt just incase you want to take it off later.

Good luck!

Got it!
I put a screwdriver through the ps pump pulley and locked it...extra friction from the belts did the trick.
