If you have not purchased a air wrench, here is what I have done on my 89 Honda.

I removed the cover to the flywheel. Get a hardened metric bolt in the thread that is used on the clutch pressure place. Put the bolt in from the pan side. It will thread in about 4-5 threads. Rotate the engine until this bolt is up against the transmission housing. Get a 3' piece of pipe and stand on it.

I purchased a 1/2 inch, 18 inch breaker bar and several extensions to get it beyond the edge of the fender. Otherwise I could not get enough torque on it to get it to come loose.

I reverse everything to put it back on, but I only use about a 1 1/2 feet on the pipe extension and pull it as tight as I can.

Best of Luck to you.

Got it with a 1/2" breaker bar. Bent the hell out of my screwdriver, but the thing finally came off.

yup breaker bar & cheater pipe only thing thats worked for me. my 12gallon compressor and impact gun did NOTHING to budge it. the toughest thing is to secure the flywheel BEFORE using that breaker-bar. PB blaster/wd-40 soak it first a few times also.

For next time...You can buy a crank pulley holding tool for about $15 for the Hondas. There are two varieties depending on year. For my 97 civic hx its a 50mm hex thing that you can attach a 1/2" ratchet to. My 1/2" air impact would not remove the crank pulley either, had to use the breaker bar. The other variety has pins that fit into the crank pulley.

Id be leery of doing it that way. Youd probably be putting more ft lbs through the engine/tranny than what its rated for. Just my opinion anyway.

I had the same feeling at first. Then I figured that any shaft in the tranny, and the halfshafts, was much, much thicker than the 1/2 inch drive extension I was using, so my conclusion was that the tranny was stronger than my 1/2 inch extension. I could still be wrong, though.
