Put the car in high gear too when you torque it, otherwise the car may try to roll, even with the parking brake on.

i don't know how thats going to work with having a automatic trans. i think if i put a pipe wrench on the section thats out i might be able to torque it. im talking about the section that the pulleys bolt to.

To keep from spinning when your torque put a couple bolts in holes where pulley bolts to and put a pry par between them. Have some hold that as yo torque it down. Just did mine when I did timing chain and it was 70 to 90 lbs.

or you could rent a 1/2 " electric or pneumatic impact wrench (if you don't own one)
