I am changing the timing belt on a 94 4'runner with the 3.o liter v6
engine. Is the crank shaft pulley bolt right hand or left hand thread? I
have tried just about everything to get it loose...... any suggestions?

It's a normal thread, it's just really on there. I wrap a chain wrench
around the crank pulley and then put a three foot breaker bar with a
socket on the bolt, and pull like hell. It takes two people sometimes.

The easiest way is to get a 24" x 3/4" steel pipe from home depot and stick
your socket wrench into it. Put the pipe under and against the body frame on
the passenger side. Have someone hold the socket wrench in place. Crank the
engine slightly, the camshaft bolt should crank loose. I just did it
recently to replace the timing belt on my 1990 4runner.
