If you remove the starter, you can expose the flywheel gear and wedge
something in there to keep the crank from turning.

Subject: [FOT] torquing a Spitfire crank nut
I'm looking for different ideas on how to torque the crank nut on Susan's
Spitfire with the engine already in the car. When the engine is on the
stand I just use a block of wood to keep the crank from rotating, simple
and easy. But when the engine is in the car there is no way to keep the
crank from turning.
The only method I have used before was a chain type vice grip. It worked
but chewed the crank pulley, not the most desirable end result.
So, anyone got any tricks of the trade that will work for me?!
