Crank pulley tightening

Any idea of how to lock the motor so you can put the 100 fl/lbs of torque on the nut. 

 

I expect that I will be taking out the starter shortly.

Engine and tran in situ? you can feed cloth rope into the spark plug bore with the piston part way up. when the engine rotates the rope will block the complete rotation. Torque, then remove rope. 

 

You can also put the car in gear with e-brake on with wheels on the ground.

 

Or just shoot it with an impact gun that runs up the torque.

Thanks much, I didn't think that would hold.

you can tighten your belt and try to hold the torque at the3 alternator or water pump.

Or try to fab something like this that comes from the starter site

No need to fab if the flywheel is exposed. $5

I was able to put the car in gear and get it tight But I am sooooo stupid. Trying to get the crank pulley tight I was using jack stands.

Pulled on the pulley and pulled it off one of the jack stands

I always keep the jack under the car either on the front or rear cross member just in case the jack stand slips.

Need the ok from the doc to be able to haul around my quickjacks.

Time for a drink.
