it gets easy after you do about a hundred of them
Still not easy for me...the crank pulley bolt is on so tight (lock-tite) that I can't get it off. I've been soaking it with penetrating oil for a year now, and hitting it with a 1/2" impact gun...no luck. Step 1: wait for either t-belt to snap, or water pump to seize. Step 2: drop-in spare engine with new belt/pump already installed. It's called "the hard way".:disappoin

I had to use the starter bump trick. pull a wire or fuze but make sure the fuel system doesnt pump. put a 19mm socket on the bolt and brace the handle against the frame or brake or something. bump the starter real quick and and it will torque the bolt loose for you. just be careful not to start the car.
