Hello all, I'm trying to change the timing belt on my 98 Camry 2.2.
Question 1....Is the crank pulley bolt reverse thread or standard?
Question 2....A special spanner wrench is required to hold the pulley still while breaking loose the crank bolt. Where do I buy one of these or what have you guys used instead of the spanner? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Question 1 answer: It is standard, turn the bolt counterclockwise to loosen.

Question 2 answer: I believe you can buy a SST (special service tool) but it isn't necessary. I used my Husky impact gun and it broke it loose easily. Impacts are the way to go on the crank pulley bolt. I guess you can use a strap wrench...
