Has anyone removed their crank pulley with problems? I can't seem to break the pulley bolt loose using a 1/2 IR Impact Wrench. Do I need a special tool. I'm trying to replace the bad timing belt tensioner. Any Suggestions from those who's put on Lightweight Pulleys.

Yeah they make a crank tool. It has a hex head that fits into the pully and holds it while you put a 3/4" socket (I use a tire wrench out of my trunk).

I think Honda sells em for $100, but maybe they'll let you borrow one. They did for me. Or do the AutoZone lend-a-tool program.
