1. Its reverse threaded.
2. There are 2 holes in the pulley where a 'pin spanner' is used to hold 
it while you break torque. Some people have had success using drill bits 
in the hole and a screwdriver to hole the pully.
3. The factory wrench is a very thin design to aid in this.
4. Once you losen it, remove the shroud bolts and take both out together 
or your swearing will reach a fever pitch...
