    Works great for removing the bolt too, but i always find it easier to rest my ratchet on the frame rail and bump the starter
    I didn't think of that... I've had one for almost 20 years, I don't think I've ever used it.

    That would work. Mine has a long handle like a breaker bar instead but same principle. just make sure to wrap an old belt or something around the pulley before setting the chain wrench up or it'll mess the belt grooves in the pulley all up.
