  Well now I see the problem.  I never could get the front pulley bolt off of 
any engine with the pan on.  You gotta take the pan off then place a tuba-4 
between the first crank throw and a stout portion of the block before you start 
pounding away with the half inch air impact.  If you don't already own a set of 
six point air-impact sockets now would be a good time to buy them.  Sears 
should have air-impact sockets in stock for a reasonable price.  I also 
recommend soaking the bolt in penetrating oil. Kroil is really great stuff, and 
I have previously used it with excellent results on some really large rusty 
nuts and bolts, but any decent penetrating oil is better than no lubrication at

the crank and I plan a WWF smackdown - wish me luck...
