A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET) By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to come out. The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft. Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order to access the seal.
