Question about 1994 Toyota Pickup
Turn the bolt counter clockwise. It is probably a very high torque bolt, p in excess of 200 foot pounds. A 1/2" breaker bar and a cheater pipe will break it loose.

One of my little tried and true methods is to take a 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch breaker bar, slide a piece of pipe over it and after choosing the correct size socket for the bolthead. Place the breaker bar and extension on the frame and have someone turn the engine over 2-3 times with the key and this will break the bolt loose.

Those bolts can be extremely tight, and the hardest part is holding the engine from turning. You often need a impact gun, or breaker bar, and I have had good success holding the engine with a chain type wrench, and protected the outside of the damper pulley with a piece of old belt.

The bolt is usually toqued to 150 foot pounds, or in the realm of 200 newton meters. torque and turns opposite engine rotation In your case counter clockwise (unless Toyota put an engine in that rotated counter clockwise- in which case the bolt would come off in a clockwise direction) If you do not have an impact wrench available, with care, locate a breaker bar on the frame rail of the truck with the socket engaged on the bolt and fully seated- bump the starter and it should loosen the bolt. You want to use great care as the wrench may pop off the bolt head with great force. This is why you want to locate the breaker bar carefully, so if it does fly off, damage to tool or truck will be minimal. In short- stand back and keep people away when you do this.
Once loose, remove the bolt and depending what type of puller you have- one that engages the threaded holes on the inner web of the balancer is best, you m ay need to install the bolt without washer to give the puller something to push against. An external jaw type is not going to do anything other than pull the outer ring off the web.
