You're going to need this exact tool to hold your flywheel in place. Then get yourself a 39in by 3/4in breaker bar with a 3/4in 19mm deep socket. It'll come right off.. Trust me.

The rope method?.. I never felt too comfortable trying that. Didn't want to damage anything internally if the crank bolt was seized... But hey, maybe I'm worrying too much.

Put your transmission in 6th gear and have someone apply the brakes, then try.

This one doesn't have the plastic at the end like I had, but the plastic broke off anyways and I had to use a blow gun to get the piece out.

OR get a stronger impact. I use a 1200ft/lb now (3/4). Paid $120 for it and it's beautiful
