I doubt it would work at all. Those things require that the pulley has threaded holes in them. The subaru pulleys don't have threaded holes in them so that tool is useless.

It is so easy to remove that bolt. I have done this a couple times and it works fine. Disconnect the ignition coil. Put a breaker bar on the bolt and hold it real strong and have a friend turn over the engine for half a second. Done.

To put it back on just pull the tranny inspection cover and wedge a pry bar in there while you torque the crank bolt.

eh? they have the holes in them. not threaded though; i thought (and the service manual has a tool and part #) of a socket type device with pointy things so the pulley doesnt turn

anyways for 3 bucks this method is sooo much better than the (imho) unsafer (not dangerous just ... sketchy) method u describe.
