That crank pulley is a pain to get a socket on and a breaker bar to turn the motor manually.

Are you snaking the breaker bar from the top or the bottom? Cauz its usually easier if you go from under the vehicle.
balancer retaining bolt
Using the balancer retaining bolt to rotate the flexplate is the best method. If you're at the correct angle laying under the left front of the vehicle and have a light shining on the starter motor opening in the bellhousing you can see the nuts on the flexplate while turning the balancer nut. At least I could on my 2WD Sport.
What size is that bolt on the crank pulley?
I think if I used a deep socket I can get the breaker bar on it.
The crank bolt should be a 19mm if I remember correctly. Once you get the flexplate-torque convertor nut centered in the starter hole you can just rotate the crank every 90 degrees
Shes all good boys thnx for your help. Almost done here now.
Finish er up tomorrow.
