Shops will sell or rent the special balancer /pulley removal tool.

You need to remove one of the spark plugs and, using an adapter and an air compressor, fill one of the cylinders with compressed air. About 100 PSI should be enough to prevent the engine from spinning while you remove the bolt. HTH. -Jim

Sometimes you can remove the starter and get a big screwdriver or similar wedged against the starter ring gear to prevent the engine from turning so you can take out the bolt. Also if you have room an pneumatic impact wrench will remove the bolt easily.

It's basically an adapter that you screw into the spark plug hole and then plug your air compressor hose on to the adapter. Your local auto parts store should have one. HTH. - Jim
