    I had to just keep working at mine in order to get it off. Tried everything under the sun. Didn't want to work for me. Finally, it just happened.

    Keep trying.

    i put a screw driver inbetween the caliper into the rotor and put it in 5gth gear and with a breaker bar i stood on it till it broke and it is a pain in the ass to get it off for the frist time. also with an extension and a hammer hit the bolt. and there all threaded the same.

    or you can get the special tool designed for pulling honda crankshaft pulleys. i have one and using it plus 2 breaker bars i got mine off in no time.

    here is one type: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda-Harmonic-Damper-Crank-Shaft-Pulley-Holder-Tool_W0QQitemZ370106339611QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item370106339611&_trkparms=72%3A727%7C39%3A1%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245

    here is another type: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Hond...727|39:1|65:12|240:1318&_trksid=p4506.c0.m245

    it is universal to hondas. it will work on any honda crank pulley... Ever.

    The following isn't a joke, I've done it.

    Take a full exhaust (about 6-9 feet?) slide that over your rachet/breaker bar, or what ever you are using, and pull with that. The x amount of feet in leverage will totally losen that bitch up.

    Hell, if all else fails, take it down to the local Honda dealership. Most will pull the bolt out for free or for a very minimal charge. Beats paying all that money for special tools and different crap that aren't a guarantee. I had to do that before I bought a 3/4" drive impact. Plus, if they break it at the dealership, they fix it for no charge. haha
