RE:Timing belt tricks (home brew way of holding crank)

I was rotating my engine the other day and found the crank bolt was only
hand tight!!!!!

I went down to the lumber store and bought a pipe coupler that fits the
inside diameter of the crank pulley recess where the bolt goes.  I then
cut/notched the coupler to fit the raised portion of the ID of the crank

This coupler is then held with a pipe wrench/cheater bar and the bolt
can be turned with a socket down the middle of the coupler.

It worked pretty well.
