stuck harmonic balancer bolt

Thank God I just got this dreaded bolt off!!!
All it took was a long pry bar, a 3/4" socket, a hydraulic car jack and some wood jammed down through the now-empty cylinders to stop the crank shaft from turning. Yes this has turned into a total rebuild since a valve seat came loose and ruined the pistons.
