CHEVY STUCK CRANKSHAFT

2002 Chevrolet Prizm

Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Chevy Prizm 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles

I'm doing a rebuild, only have the crank left to remove, I've taken out all of the bolts from the main caps, but can't get the lower section or crank to move on one side.

Is their some thing special I need to do.

Is there a chain for the oil pump on there?

No the chain has been removed, I found a bolt hid under the oil filter adapter, so the problem is solved.
The 20th bolt that holds the lower block to the middle section is hid under the oil filter adapter, I had to re-read my repair manual to see it. Thanks anyway.
