Wedge a small block of wood between the drive plate and the housing where it bolts to the torque converter. This will stop the motor from turning.
Now get a long (6-8 foot) pipe to extend that cheater bar.
I had to put an 8 foot antenna mast over a 3/4" breaker bar with a block of wood between the piston and frame of my Harley to break loose the bolt on the compensation sprocket. I had someone sit on the back of the bike because it was lifting off the ground. That bolt was spec'ed at 325 ft-lbs.
