Trying to remove crankshaft nut to finish up the timing components. Do not have a torque wrench, so it says I need to disable the ignition system or is thier another way to do this without the volvo holding tool 9995433?

If you have room to fit a socket on the nut with a breaker bar set up so it is locked in place against the chassis rail or ground, remove coil wire and click starter so the breaker bar locks against the ground and the engine will turn and undo the nut, this is dangerous so take care, just flick the starter just enough to crack the nut loose then undo by hand.
