Removing hand start dog

I need to remove the starter dog on the front end of the crank shaft in order to replace the front crank seal. The engine is out of the truck. What's the best way to keep the crank from turning without damaging anything? Ideas?

Large flat tip against the teeth on the flywheel on the rear of the engine? Or really lazy just use an air impact wrench and it should just come right off. Of course hit with your choice of lube if you want.

Interogrative: it it LH or RH thread? Impact or a large socket hit with a hammer for shock. Heat and lube helps.

Standard righty-tighty. I always use an impact for removal.

Thanks for the suggestions. Need to find an impact socket that size. Seems like around 1 - 5/8 or 1-11/16. Will also try locking with the flywheel.

The only place local that I could find the socket was at Tractor Supply. Forgot what size - it was some time ago.

Got it. There's a new tool store next to American Furniture in Thornton. They had an excellent selection.

I went with 1-11/16. It's a little loose so 1-5/8 might have worked. I would have bought both but I had to pay $30 for it.
