Default 88 subaru GL crankshaft pulley bolt size

anybody know the size of the crankshaft pulley bolt? All I know is that it is bigger than 20 mm, cause that is the biggest socket that I have currently.

the car is an 88 front wheel drive FI 1.8L automatic 4 door sedan

Also anything I should know before attempting to remove it ?

thanks any info appreciated.

Its 22mm

Need to find a way to lock everything in place before turning it, or you will just turn the motor over.

Since its an auto, you can just jam a scrediver or something down into the flex plate/starter ring.

Another thought

I believe 22mm is very close to 7/8.. seems I saw someone use that and they are more common in the average tool set

Since you have an automatic... yes its a 22mm, but look into the access hole to the flywheel/flexplate. Rotate the engine by hand with the socket looking for a hole in the flexplate... when you find it jam a big burly screwdriver down into it, you can now hold the engine from rotating and get the crank bolt off. (you may need alot of force to do it)

There's another way, too. My XT's clutch isn't much longer for this world, and since I'm such a big burly guy , that when I tried to loosen the bolt with the car in gear in 5th, I actually managed to make the clutch slip. So I put the wrench on the bolt, and put an extension on the ground on the right side of the engine. I cranked the key for maybe a quarter of a second, and BAM! the bolt came loose. You can do this with an AT or MT.

I am always hesitant to recommend that way.. never know when someone is going to do it wrong and put an eye out or something.

I figure thats one of the ways that some one should just kinda find out for themselves.
