easy enough to check, pull off the inspection plate, if you can move the flexplate back and forward you got problems budd

i used my jack handle over a normal 1/4' seem to be enough leverage
1/4" is a bit small to be puttin a lever bar over thats wors than using the torque rench backwards.. maybe you mean 1/2" or 3/4" drive

That's what I use as a breaker bar. 1/2" T-Bar with a 1m pole which came with the engine stand. Works a charm on anything.
