You won't have any trouble, but if you do, CJ and I will be here to help. Let us know if you have any questions or run into trouble.
We talked about your car. It is odd for the oil pressure to have spikes and the noise is odd too. We need to know if something has locked the engine up like a bad bearing, or if something else has happened.
It is odd for the oil pressure to MAX as you described. There is pressure regulator on the oil pump, but they rarely go bad. Most people don't even know they exist because they are so dependable.
Try to see if you can turn the bottom pulley as we described. In CJ's picture above, he took the picture from the ground looking up. See which is the easiest way to access the pulley, from top of bottom. Also, he used a standard box end wrench rather than a socket and breaker bar. Use what best works for you.
