95 rodeo 3.2L v6 4x4. I believe it has jumped a couple teeth and need to redo the belt. I do not know what size the bolt is for the crankshaft though. Anyone have any idea so i can go buy the socket? And also i do not have any air tools so i will have to do this manually. anyone know how i can get the pulley to stay still?

The best way is to have a long-ish breaker bar and lay it on the frame, disable the ignition!!! and bump the starter. You'll never get it loose manually. IIRC, you'll lay the breaker bar on the drivers side of the frame. I forget what size socket it is.

A 7/8" socket will work (or metric equivalent). That sucks that you can't get your hands on an impact wrench. That is the only way I was able to get mine off and put it back on. If you have any trouble with the timing give me a shout. I just did mine twice a month or so ago. Wrong the first time, and right the second...lol.
