Put a big socket on the nut that holds the damper. Crank that sucker.
also remember to keep the car in neutral or park. Or else you could slowly run yourself over

Socket on crankshaft damper bolt....turn only clockwise (don't want you to un-torque the bolt....)

As mentioned, be sure trans is not in gear and make sure parking brake is set...disconnecting the negative battery cable isn't a bad idea either, unless you're running electrical tests...

Helps if tou remove the spark plugs before using that big socket and breaker bar.
