I have stuck a long hex key or a steel rod through one of the clutch bolt holes and locked it against the engine block. Turn the flywheel with one of the fasteners until the hex key contacts and locks against the block. Then use a 2 ft. cheater pipe on a 1/2" drive ratchet to loosen the flywheel bolts. Or you can use a long 1/2" drive breaker bar but I like the cheater pipe better.

I now have a Ingersol Rand 110V electric impact wrench (up to 200 lb./ ft. torque) which makes removing bolts a breeze and no air compressor is needed. I can completely disassemble an engine in one hour with that impact wrench..
