First their is no dumb question. Second what bolt are you removing that has to do with the timing belt change that you are unsure of the thread direction? Third all the bolts on the engine are clockwise tight and counter clockwise loosen. The ring gear on the differential is the only part that I know of that is opposite of that but that is in the transmission.

yeah, same as others, spin it counter clockwise... but that thing is a bitch. try to get a hold of a pretty strong impact gun to knock it off with. otherwise, find somewhat to stop the crank from spinning, but a socket on that thing with the biggest wrachet you can get and kick the fucker. it's tough man.

Wedge a large regular screwdriver between the bellhousing of the transmission and flywheel, and then put a breaker bar on that bitch and get it off :thumbsup:

ya we tried that but we couldnt get a good spot on the flywheel and it would just pull out of his hand.(as i cranked on the bolt)

another thing, what direction does the motor rotate? clockwise or counter?

Ya have to fight with the scrwedriver to make it work well but once ya it works great....if i remember correctly try putting the screwdriver more one the lowest part of the flywheel. That seemed to work the best for yesturday. To get it off you want to rotate the bolt counter clockwise :thumbsup:
