You can put a breaker bar,short extension combo on the bolt, lower the car on the breaker bar and it will break it loose. Do this slowly with a jack.
thanks! ...yes I realise that but nice of you to point it out just in case I didn't know

But what torque is now on that bolt is anyone's guess. And that 1.6 liter engine probably doesn't have a big starter - but then it, isn't my car.
I'm kind of leaning toward the 'jack method', clean and controlled. Just make sure you put the wrench handle on the 'correct' side of the bolt.
Actually I thought we just might be trying to increase the 'hits' on FF !
It has a double auxiliary pulley (a small one with a bigger one behind it). The small one had no belt and the larger one had the auxiliary belt (alternator etc) around it. Behind this is the lower timing belt cover; behind that is the crankshaft timing sprocket, = 3 in total. I've looked at how to's as well. The torque is the SAME as the pulley has not moved in either direction yet. It has a Smallish starter! Considering jack method at moment. No, not just trying to increase hits on FF ~ actually I wish that's all it was - lol ~ I assure you it is a real bolt with a real attitude problem - lol.

surely the crankshaft will simply rotate as there appears to be no way of keeping it still?

It sounds like you may not have good, solid crankshaft countertorque. The best/safest method is to yank the starter and "jam" the flywheel. There is a "Ford" tool that engages about three or four teeth of the starter ring gear.

You know what I would do. Find iminhell or 03OrangeSVT and ask them.

The single lug/tooth design tool should hopefully do the job for you, but you would hate to snap off a gear tooth or break the tool, considering that your's seems to be really tight. The two or three lug/tooth design tool will just distribute the load over more teeth. I've seen both designs.......surely you can locate/buy/rent one at your location in Britain.
