 I got the engine out. .... How do I get that "crank dog" off the end there
without the engine turning over?

Remove clutch cover.  Install two medium length bolts in the flywheel.  Use
a long tire iron or pipe as a lever between those bolts to keep the
crankahsft from turning while you wrench out the crank nut at the front.
You may need an extra hand to hold the engine down while you do this, but
if it's on an engine stand you can just brace the rear lever against the
mounting bracket.
