I've taken the crank pulley off once before but it was a pain because I had to borrow an air compressor and air tools from a friend.

Since I tq'ed it back on by hand, do you think it will come off easily by hand this time?
I don't wantto tear everything apart again but then not be able to remove it by hand. I have no one nearby that can help out with air tools this time.
I thought I heard someone says that bolt tightens naturally due to it rotation? So is this true? Is this bolt going to be a pain to get off again?

i didnt think so.
I thought that it might be as well, but I had to take one off a day after I put it on and it wasnt any better.
