Yes easiest way to do that is disconnect everything nessessary then when it comes time to remove the crank bolt have a friend inside the car and attach the socket and ratchet to the bolt with a cheater bar wedged to either the frame or ground. (I take no responsibility for your or anyone else's actions.) Have your friend turn the engine over and the starter will loosen the bolt for you with ease. If you need more info reply and I'll post the whole procedure from the manual.
