remove the starter and slide a prybar/large screwdriver in the flywheel teeth to hold it in place. this works better with two people.

What motor do you have? If it's any variation of D16 there should be hex-shaped hole that you insert a special tool to hold the crank. They also make a tool for the D15's as they do not have the hexagon hole. You can also make your own tool. I'm using this reference as I made my own tool for my D15. crankshaftpulleyholdingtools (hondalioness)

Pulley holder + 1/2 breaker bar + 5 foot pipe = win

Something about jamming the flywheel with a screwdriver doesn't sit well with me, but good luck. That's the same motor I have and mine doesn't have the hex hole either. I suggest doing what the link says and make your own tool. That's what I did but like I said in my previous post, I won't know how good it work until tomorrow when I actually use it. I bought all the material at Lowe's and it was like 15 bucks for the welding bar and drill bit.

The flywheel trick works, but even the biggest screwdriver I have wouldn't hold up to the 156ft lb factory torque on it. Try finding a small pry bar instead. Best case scenarios is that you have a Z6 pulley and that way you can use the Honda crank pulley tool.

i put the car in fifth gear and had a friend hit the brakes while i stuck a screw driver in the flywheel with the dust plate removed. then had a 3ft breaker bar and a fat guy and that worked for me

I had an interesting time removing it from my 89 hatch. Ended up using a medium sized pipe wrench to hold the crank pulley itself, a half inch impact at 120psi, and a three foot long pipe wrench on the socket extension closest to the impact gun. We had like four long extensions on it in order to get it out of the fender well. Once I finally got the pipe wrench to dig into the smooth socket extension, my buddy ran the impact gun at full power until the bolt finally came loose in about 10 seconds.

Warning - may damage crank pulley, but much easier than trying to hold it with a screwdriver.

put it in gear, bash the head of the bolt a couple times with a sledge and then throw some pb-blaster on it. Then warm the head up with some map-gas for about 30 seconds and hit it with the air gun should zip right off.
