EA81 - adding A/C pulley ?

Thanks in advance!

I've used this technique several times, it's worked even when an impact wrench wouldn't.
It's really eazy, but hard to explain, but you will need a breaker bar:
Here's an example of the same principle, but instead of using the ground it's using the frame of the vehicle:
The engine turns clockwise (from the front) pushing down on the bar and thus breaking the bolt loose.
The pulley should come off pretty easily from there, maybe a little pulling and wiggling and you're good to go!

Using your starter to bump it free works, sometimes.. but if you have enough leverage, the rope trick works no matter HOW stuck it is.

Carnot, I think the shipping from Australia would be higher than you could p/u one from a wrecking yard locally. Also, at least for the EA81 I pulled it from (I believe it was an 82 as that was the only MY in the yard), you can simply unbolt the outer pulley from the inner (it's attached by both the main crank bolt, which is 22mm, and 2 x 12mm bolts), then retighten the 22mm bolt and you're done - I think the 2 x 12mm bolts are just used to keep the A/C pulley and water pump/alternator pulleys running together.

Good point, I didn't even look at your location.
