Mine was a bitch to get out. It's a 92. You may have to remove the clutch pulley and drive pully to get at it. You will need a clutch removin tool and a lot of patience. I'm now having problems restaliing the pulley.

The front clutch. I wonder if I have to pound it on cause all the bolt does is spin the shaft. But the starter is in and works!

what might be happening is when your tightening the bolt on the crank shaft your motor is turning over.

i have done this on motors before. 1 st tale put the spark plug 2 nd turn over the motor at the crank shaft put your finger on top of the spark plug hole. turn the motor over to where the compression hisses out that should be at or close to top dead center. or hold a screw driver with your hand in the plug hole slowley turn the motor over by hand look at your screw driver wool dowl rod when the driver comes up no further and starts to go back down just befor it starts to go back down was top dead center. now take out you screw driver or dowl rod what ever you used in the spark plug hole. rotate the motor back words from the the you were turning it. say1/8 to 1/4 tale a some cotton ropeor like 1/2" rubber fuel ling in the plug hole make sure you have a foot or so hanging out of the motor put in 8010" of that rope in the hole now turn the motor over by hand till it wont turn over any more. now tighten down the bolt on the clutch. once tightened turn the motor over by hand backwards grab the rope thats still hanging out the spark plug hole put the plug back in the hole the rope sill act as a piston stop keeping the motor from turning over as you tighten the clutch bolt. that has worked for me in the past on cars. boat motors etc.
i would not tighten the crank bolt to it's final tightening just enough to keep it from spinning on the shaft. then use something to keep the clutch from turning for the final torquing of the bolt thats after you put the plug back in

Tomorrow I'm taking a 2x4 and my sledge hammer to it. Maybe on the rear to. Hope to have it running before the colts kick ass.
