I found a 12 sided 18mm it gripped well, so hopeful. Have to wait tomorrow get a 6 side.

It's now back in the car, car on 4 wheels..
After a bit of advice to torque it up..
Handbrake on, brake wedged oncar in first and I still seem to be able to turn the pulley and the bolt...

That looks a bit home made?
Is there an off the shelf part that does the job? - Lots of people appear to change the chains themsevles and I've never really read about issues relating to tighting the nut back up.. ooo er

I guess to get the resistance of brakes and weight of the car these need to be fully torqued up....?

its 100NM + 75deg + 15deg.
you could just use 13 dugga duggas from the air gun.

I can't even get the air gun in there as the engine is now back in the car...
Dang - I had a flywheel locking tool aswell to remove the bolt, but I couldn't get anywhere near the torque to tighten it up off the car..
I'm thinking to somehow try and wedge something in the pulley, but cant see any obvious location of method of doing this

I don't think there's any other access point to the flywheel with gearbox/engine in?...

you can slip a flatheaded screwdriver on the exhaust side, there is a tiny gap between the box and engine.. its fiddly but you can do it from there.. much easier than removing the starter.
