Can you tell me how to get the Harmonic Balancer bolt loose? Right or left hand threads? Any suggestions like torch,cheater bars. I tried an impact both directions and it won't loosen. Thanks!

Is the engine turning with you might have to pull the pulleys then put pulleys bolts back in and a cross brace on them to stop that. It's just standard threads, right on left off..

You can wedge the breaker bar against the ground and hit the starter really quickly. It'll break loose easily. Not real professional, but it will work...

OMG!!!!!! I put a long cheater bar on the bolt and put it near the ground. Then I hit the starter and the cheater bar rotated around and tore thru my new GTO hood. ^*#@$&#**!

I blocked the crankshaft from turning and used a 5 ft cheater. Worked great!
Thanks!
