Posted via FF Mobiledisciplerocks - if you`ve got time to burn, check out the thread mentioned earlier when doc spent weeks in his driveway on an issue that started out this way..... First post just asked if an electric impact might do the job, ended up with a LONG project Grumpy helped lead him through...

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.
