    Snap on and Matco make a special tool to hold camshaft pulleys. You can try using the old timing belt wrapped around the pulley and use a large channel lock pliers to open the bolt. The crankshaft bolt is usually very tight I think it is SK tools make a socket that works great for loosening the crank pulley bolt.
