Crank Pulley

Im trying to change my timing belt, as well as some other stuff on my engine and i found i need to remove the crank pully. but i have so far had no luck in doing this. I have been able to keep the engine from turning, but the bolt/nut holding the pully on will not budge. anyone have any ideas about how to loosen that bolt/nut??????????????

Others have used the breaker bar method, which is place a breaker bar up against the frame and bump the starter to turn the engine. You can do a search on youtube and actually see video of this.

Only other solution is to use impact wrench.
