Please excuse my ignorance, but i have two questions to clarify how to rotate the crankshaft:
1) The dampner you are talking about is this accessible from underneath the car and located to the front where bolt that turns the engine driven by the belt?
2) Do you turn the crankshaft clockwise and you're saying (with 8-cylinder engine) this shouldn't be a big effort?
Thanks for your help.
