To remove the crankshaft pulley which direction does the bolt come off. is it left-loose, right tight or is it reverse treaded. I have the front crankshaft seal leaking and before hitting it with a impact gun just wanted to know which way to go.

If you're using an impact i'd think you'd want to set it on "Reverse"

But yeah, counter clockwise is always loose, unless it's reverse threaded which the crank bolt isnt. If your impact isnt working, try turning the PSI up, or getting a better gun.

theres also the cheater method. Pull the fuel pump fuse. Use a breaker bar and crank the ignition one little bump. Will be lose and ready to go.
