1996 Honda Accord Question: harmonic balancer bolt will not remove does it clock wise or counter clock wise

tell me which way does it losen -
Answer 1
It turns counter clockwise to open. There is a special tool that attaches to a breaker bar to hold the pulley while you crack open the crank pulley bolt. I have seen the tool on line for about $50 to $60. -
