If you have a manual, have someone get in the car, put it in 5th gear and stand on the brakes while you loosen the crank bolt.
if you have an auto, there is a little plastic plug on the top passenger side of the bell housing for the automatic. With this removed you can stick a big prybar or something down in there to catch the backside of the torque converter and keep the motor from turning over.
My pulley didn't come off nice and easily. It eventually came off, but took some persuasion.

Yes, be triple-sure that you torque it down enough when you put it back on. Some of us on the Legacy BBS have ruined engines because a loose pulley chewed up the crank...

Could you give us some more details ? Just curious.

Well... ya see what is was....
I had to pull the engine to replace the transmission oil seal behind the converter, which was leaking, and after I got the engine back in the car, I decided that this would be an excellent time to replace the cam belt as long as I already had the radiator and stuff out of the way. So I kind of rolled it all into the same job.
Anyhow, this was my first undertaking of a job this big on a Sube. The humorous part of this whole job is my brother gave me this car because his local mechanic convinced him that the transmission was junk and couldn't be fixed. I told him I didn't think so but he wouldn't believe me. So far I've got $78.00 total invested in this car. Pretty cheap transportation!
