its simple stick two extension on the pully then slip a pry bar between then. then you with your ratchet/breaker bar loosen it while a buddy pulls the other way very easy.

This. I have an extra socket wrench that I've used on several different engines. It works perfectly on Subarus.

BTW, you can borrow a torque wrench from autozone for free, just leave a refundable deposit!!
I would rather use my "torque" arm for the tq spec then a autozone

I just made a little bar for the back of the engine. It allows me to put a clutch bolt in the flywheel and thread a trans bolt into the back of the block. With those two tightened down, the engine cannot turn.

Then I just go back to the front and easily undo the pulley bolt with my breaker bar. Granted this only works if you have the trans off too.

If the trans is still attached go with the braker bar on the frame rail + starter method.

I'm confused, is everyone suggesting that you take the crankshaft off while the car is on??

No. Your are "bumping" the starter. Basically using the torque of the starter motor to break the bolt loose. Pull the fuel pump relay or pull the ignition fuse to keep the motor from accidentally starting.

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

i didnt come up with this but it DOES work...done it more than once

AND DO NOT LOSE THE WODRUFF KEY
