crank pulley remove

I want to put on my UDP but the instructions say I need a impact wrench to remove. I allready assumed it is a reverse thread but I cant keep it from turning when I crank on it and I have run out of ideas on how to keep it from turning the motor while I crank on the crank. My lightning had a tranny strap that allowed you to lock it and then break it loose, I have no idea what to do with this thing

HELP

I'm not an expert on the subject but I think I read somewhere that the threads are normal right hand threads. Would be good to know for sure because I am thinking about getting an UDP soon myself.

crank pulleys are normal right hand thread, and you do need an impact gun to loosen it, unless you have a flywheel holding tool and can access the flywheel to lock it.

wrong fokuzx3, they turn counterclockwise to loosen. it's a standard tread bolt, it tightens clockwise. and there's no remembering how the pulley goes on, it has a keyway so that it only goes on one way

Impact wrench makes all the difference... Find a friend that has one. It will be especially critical when you go to put the bolt back on... although it never hurts to put the engine in gear and have someone stand on the brake pedal to keep the engine from turning.

So its a STANDARD thread, I always thought it would be opposite the direction the crank turns so it is always tightening the bolt when thee car is running.
So if I use a breaker bar hanging straight down from the bolt I need to PULL it toward the front Bumper.....right?
If thats the case I spent an hour last night tightening the damn thing

yeah man, it's a standard thread. crank bolts don't need to be reverse thread to stay tight because they're supposed to be under so much torque anyway that they won't come loose

Standing on the brake will do nothing to stop your engine from turning....the brake controls...well...the brakes....you can get the pully off with out an impact wrench but you shold get one when putting on the new one to make sure its on there tight.....i just put on my pully about 2 weeks ago and my gas milage went up and the engine runs better....goodluck
