Default harmonic balancer removal RL 3.5

I am trying to remove the balancer on my RL (Timing Belt replacement). I
can not get the bolt to brake loose. Does it turn counter clock wise to
loosen as most do? How much tork will it take? I am using the special
holding tool.

Thanks for you assistance.

We guestimated that it took 300-500 pound-feet to break loose the bolt on
our Odyssey. (The tightening spec on the bolt was 180).

We used a hardened socket & breaker bar fitted with a 4 ft piece of gas pipe
for leverage - the bar twisted a full 90 degrees before the bolt popped
loose. I have no idea why the socket and/or bar didn't snap off.

I've already broken one craftsman impact socket trying to get the thing
loose. Also used a breaker bar and 4 ft piece of pipe. Once I get a
replacement for the socket I'll try again.

Thanks for the info. I'll let you know if I flip the car trying to get the
thing off.
