Or you could just remove the spark plugs or ignition fuses (2) and set the breaker bar to the left with the socket on the pulley and crank the car 1-2 times and the engine will unbolt it for you.I did this all time when I didnt own a impact tool and it always work.

ha... i wouldnt trust the starter or me to hold it.

it took a lot of bar and weight to get my last one lose... i'm 215lbs and was on the end of a 6 foot bar... my skinny ass little brother was on 6 ft of bar doing pull ups on the other end (and yanking me up in the air) before it broke lose.

that much force on the bolt... the starter will rip the bar from your hands and you will fuck something up.

i have done this several times and it works like a charm.
