I made my own tool to hold the crank shaft pulley while loosening or tightening.



Plate to lock the crankshaft in place to remove/tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt and/or flywheel. The notch of the left fits the lower alternator bracket without any offset required.

The bolt is a left-hand thread and must be loosened by turning counter-clockwise. The torque spec is about 85-90 ft/lbs. Some manuals may have 55 ft/lbs. which is too loose and may result in the key way problems.

You surely mean right-hand thread if it is to be loosened by turning CC?
