Crankshaft bolt


I am looking for some help getting the crank bolt loose on my M20. I have tried my impact with no luck. Are there any tricks?


I don’t have personal experience with the M20 crank bolt, but in other cars I’ve had to use a couple breaker bars and a friend to break it free. I remember connecting a couple of jack handles together to get as much leverage as possible. Let us know how if goes!


I am so frustrated that the impact wasn’t able to loosen the bolt! I am going to accept defeat and order the tool to hold the crank and Hulk smash bolt.
