Crankshaft pulley bolt again
1999 Accord EX, with 2.3l VTEC, trying to remove the crankshaft pulley. Took it to Honda shop to loosen the pulley bolt, they refused to tighten below 250nm for safety reasons. However they losened and retorqued to spec, they said.
I put a 650lb-ft torque wrench to it, the air up to 120psi, it's rounding the bolt head but no budge. Have the hex tool to keep pulley from moving. Tried 19mm socket with 18" breaker bar, but I'm reading people using 3-4' pipes - so I don't stand much chance with my breaker bar.
My question is, is the bolt losening counterclockwise?? I remember reading that somewhere in this forum, don't seem to find that post.
'12 Accord SE 2.3L VTEC - even lower miles
'05 Volvo S60 T5 - low miles
