I found this on the local newsgroup:

I have yet to replace the timing chain in our Subys but I have seen the
questions posted re how to hold the crank in order to unscrew the crankshaft
bolt. (I have been assuming I can do it with an air wrench, but that does
require removing the radiator to make space.)
The latest flyer from Harbor Freight has their number 42717-2HAB 24" chain
wrench on sale for $9.99. It is the "spitting image" of the wrench shown in
the Haynes manual (Haynes number 89100) for exactly this purpose, Haynes'
figure 6.7 captioned "Use a chain wrench to lock the cranshaft pulley whike
removing the crankshaft bolt..."
I will be checking to see if our local HF store has these in stock, the
catalog with this item is for ordering from. (You can see the tool at the HF
web site, www.harborfreight.com if you enter the item number 42717,
but it will appear at the $19.99 regular price. If you use their "Order from
Printed Catalog" button and enter the complete number above you will get the
reduced price.) My experience with HF tools of this sort is that they are
not works of art but are apt to do their job well enough.

Maybe it can be useful.

we might not have to remove the radiator if we get a 22mm socket, 1/2" drive, and use the breaker bar....

are you getting ready for doing the tan wagon? ;)

I'm a believer in the "brute force" technique of "letting the engine do it." Yes, the beige wagon is ready any time you are.
