I been trying to remove a crankshaft pulley for a fee days now and can't budge. It's on a engine hoist and I bring it down to the ground and constantly try to but nada.I will keep trying and I was wondering if someone with experience with this in Chicago or near would be willing to take it off for me. I'm willing to throw in some cash if taken off for me. Let me know. Thanks

Try using a pulley. You can rent a pulley from the red shirts.

only way I ever got mine off was with a $30 Harbor Freight Electric impact wrench. Worked like a champ. + $15 for the metric impact socket set
