O/T--DD ranger crank pulley removal

ok so i finally got my s together and dug into changing my timing belt on the ranger('01,2.5L inline 4)

now im hung up at step # whatever---"remove crankshaft pulley"

seems to me it wasnt this big of an issue on other cars ive had, but the bolt will not break free, my air gun wouldnt do it either....so i gave it a spray of penetrating oil and figured i'd post up here for thoughts...

any ideas/tricks will be appreciated, as always, thanks in advance

A 1/2" socket/ratchet and a huge breaker bar. It worked for me... Was that an air hammer, or impact gun you used?

it is an impact gun, tried both directions as im unsure if its right or left hand threads

i think ill grab a strap wrench from work and see if that will hold the crank from turning


thanks again
