You are not kidding!
I know what you mean about that bolt where the stupit cooling lines are. I've been putting it off for a few days now and thinking about getting an impact wrench and an air compressor but don't know how to convince my other yet.
I may just putting off the head work for now just try to replace the timing chain, guides and tensioner.
So how did you finally remove the the bolt? As for the crank shaft pulley nut, I may try to use the starter to crack it loose while wedge a socket to the nut against the ground.
Thanks for the response
