If I'm standing at the hood of the car with the radiator and driver seat in-front of me which way does the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley (BOLT)-turn to loosen?) clock wise or counter clock wise. please be absolutely sure before answering. i have tried with 2 6ft breaker bars and the Honda crankshaft damper tool turning counterclockwise and no luck. I'm afraid I'm tightening it

    righty tighty levty loosey. but its going to be very tight. you have to hold crank pulley or flywheel to get it loose. if you can remove starter it will give you access to flywheel teeth
