Question Crank Pulley

I've tried both directions attempting to loosen the bolt on the crank pulley on an EJ25. Before I jump on a mile long extension with all my Bohemian girth I like to verify the thread direction, anyone sure?

.....well if you aren't using a GOOD 1/2" drive, 6pt socket.....you are pissing in the wind.....5th gear and have someone stand on the brake pedal and use a 3ft pipe on your longest breaker bar.....DO NOT HIT/DENT THE HOOD.

You may need to 'tap' the pulley off with a plastic hammer or mallet....
DO NOT LOOSE THE WOODRUFF KEY!!!!!!!!!

Assuming you don't have any cheap tools. (DO NOT ATTEMPT with tools of questionable quality)

Use the engine, it's there for you.

What I do is have a 1/2" breaker bar with that 22mm six-point, place it snug and "pre-cranked" onto the pulley bolt.

Then lay the handle (should be long enough) end on the driver-side fender/frame near the battery area, making sure nothing is in the way (eg: PS lines, AC lines). It is important to have the handle on the frame area snug (by having it be "pre-cranked from the engine) and not loose or hovering above the surface.

Double check to make sure the socket is fully seated in the bolt.

With everything in place, crank the engine from the starter lightly for about a quarter of a second

You'll hear the bolt break loose and voila, repeat if it's not loose.

Post Another Crank Pulley Victim

A deep 6 pt impact socket, 1/2" breaker bar + pipe extension is the only way I could get it off my 4EAT. Shouldn't be a big deal on the manual tranny. I hate to recommend the "starter method," but do a search and take caution.

-I had already tried that Pakin. Thx. Good socket, breaker bar and a GOOD pipe.

With that done and verified timing marks all lined up, any concensus on what would cause all cylinders to have low compression on an engine with less than 2k? 40,60,80,60. My guess is head gaskets. If so why?
