The torque spec is 330 ft-lbs. I used a 600 ft-lb, 3/4 inch drive torque wrench. It was 44 inches long, and took all my weight bouncing on the end of it to break it loose. I also locked the flywheel and put a c-clamp around the driver side motor mount. It`s right hand thread...turn it counterclockwise to loosen. Good luck, it took about 470 ft-lbs to loosen mine.
88 ///M3 Cinnabar

at the front of the crank. I 've been pullin' away and tapping it with some WD-40 and nothings happening, I even tried turning the other way but that didn't work either.

anyone else have this problem? is there something I can do? it's not reverse thread is it?
