Q: How to remove the crank pulley on 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo


A little problem with my crank pulley. For some reason the crank pulley has moved to its right (away from the motor block), thus not alining with the other pulleys. Trying to loosen the 15mm bolt to no avail since the whole engine is turning. Greatly appreciate any suggestions.
