[DML] Re: Crankshaft Pulley

A proper torque-rated (>150ft. lbs) impact wrench will remove the 
pulley without the need to lock the flywheel.  I've done it this way 
a couple times with no complaints.

Other than using a impact wrench or locking the flywheel, the only 
method left (that I can think of) is blocking the wheels and putting 
the transmission in drive (or reverse), that should allow you to 
remove the nut with a breaker bar.  I wouldn't recommend this method 
(even though I have in the past, on a manual).  Keep in mind that in 
drive the car will attempt to roll backwards as you apply counter-
clockwise force to the crank and vice-versa in reverse.

I've heard, and it makes sense to me, that you shouldn't apply lock-
tite when you put the nut back on (although the manual recommends it).
