AEM Pulley Install Help...

Went to go work on this little project, and the belt tensioner wouldn't budge. I know that it takes a lot of force, but I was using a foot long wrench which didn't provide me with a lot of leverage. What should I use instead? A breaker bar?

Also, anyone have any close-ups of the part on the tensioner that I'm supposed to be pulling on? The picture in the install section is quite small, and you can't really see the part. Just wanna make sure that I'm pulling on the right part.

Thanks.

I believe I know what part it is now, but how about a way to make the damn thing move?

I finally got the alternator out of the engine bay. I guess I didn't have to because I have an impact wrench, but it should be easier this way. The bolt on the bottom was a pain in the ass to get loose. One bloody hand later and the problem was solved.


One more question. How in the hell am I supposed to hold the pulley still while I'm trying to take it off? When I try and unscrew the screw that's holding it on, the pulley moves with it and negates bolt movement. Holding that thing with your hand is just asking for a god damn cut or burn on your hand. I also tried holding it with one of those rubber bottle opener things, and that didn't work either. Any suggestions?


One more thing, when trying to take off the pulley, am I supposed to be loosening the 10mm nut on the end, or the somewhat larger one behind it?????

My 75 ft/lb impact wrench can't take the nut off of the pulley. How much torque is holding this thing on there??????
