Default Crankshaft pulley bolt removal?

I'm having a big problem trying to remove the crankshaft pulley bolt on my ea82 motor with manual transmission. Can someone describe or post a picture of the tool that is used to lock the flywheel?

I have tried bumping the starter with a blocked wrench on the bolt to no avail. Have also had it in gear with the parking brake on, but still can't undo it.

Thanks,

Tom

put tranny in gear with e-brake on and give her hell man, she'll move with a 3 ft breaker bar trust me, unless oyur like 40 lbs or something, remember to torque it down to factory specs afterwards.

I have a small hole drilled into the top of the bellhousing. It lines up with the hole in the flywheel. I simply drop an old phillips screwdriver through the hole and away we go.

Smile Mission Accomplished - Thanks Calebz

I drilled the hole directly behind the access hole for accessing the timing marks on the flywheel. Put a moistened rag through the access hole to collect the drill shavings. Started drilling perpindicular into the angled surface of the bellhousing and then finished the hole straight up directly in line with the flywheel hole position. With a phillips screwdriver through the newly drilled hole and into one of the flywheel holes, which locked the flywheel in place, the crankshaft pulley bolt came loose easily with my 22mm socket - 1/2" drive & 16" long breaker bar.

Calebz, I owe you a beer.

Glad it worked out for you.

Wish I could claim that bit of brilliance as my own, but I learned it from another soob nut in the northeast.
