Well, bad instructions or maybe you didn't read something well. I don't know.

What I do know is that you don't need to loose crank gear for timing belt job. And if you were trying to replace crank pulley then you do it by attaching long ratchet to the bolt and turning the engine starter (in short, if you didn't do that before you better read into detailed procedure).

Let us know how it went with releasing the stuck pin.

Our Lady of blessed acceleration

But.... why read facts and investigate a claim when it supports your ideology?
...that should be written as 'The First Law of Internet Forums'
