TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT

2002 Lexus IS 300

Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Lexus IS 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 114, 00 miles

I'm replacing the timing belt and can't seem to get the crankshaft bolt loosened to remove the belt drive pulley and damper. I've been trying with a 1/2" impact. Is the bolt standard or reverse threaded and is a 1/2" impact wrench strong enough for the job?

Try using a breaker bar, brace it securely in place and crank engine over-think safety-
