can you get it off with out this tool if you can how thank you scott
Expert:  JHoop replied 9 years ago.
Sure... Try to hold it with a wrench. If that don't work, then try a socket. If that don't work, then try to put some Vice Grips on it. The lip is so thin you have to grab though. Expect it to be a little harder. Let me know if you still cant get it. Thanks, JHoop.

This is a different expert

The tools don't work all that well anyway.

Here is a trick I use all the time and it works great.

Leave the belt on for the moment. Find the longest chisel you can and a heavy hammer. Position the chisel along the left edge of the nut and hit it sharply with the hammer. The nut will break free rather easily and then spin right off. You can tighten it the same way.

You should leave the Belt on until you get it broke loose anyway. This will help hold it from freely spinning on you. Feel free to beat on your engine if you want too.
