1997 Dodge p.u. 2500 4x4 with auto locking hubs. What is the procedure for tightening the axle on hub nut, as this is also tightening wheel bearing?

I use an impact gun. But I believe the torque is around 75 foot pounds. You will have to use a pry bar and torque wrench to get the right settings.

The pinion nut will not come off this is the front axle is it left hand threaded

I've never seen a left hand thread on a pinion. They are normally very tight. We use a half inch air impact wrench to take them off. An alternative would be to hold the yoke with a large pipe wrench and turn the nut with a socket on a long breaker bar. You can even use a pipe as an extension to the breaker bar

Cant get my axel off

If you are referring to the axle nut on the end of the axle shaft, you may need an impact wrench, or make sure to bend the nut back (straighten out the bent section), put the car on the ground with the wheel on, and use a breaker bar, with a 3 foot piece of pipe attached (cheater bar) to loosen it. REMEMBER - some of these are reverse thread, if so you will have to go clockwise to loosen and CCW to tighten, thus, you MAY be tightening it - check the thread on the end of the shaft to tell you what way to turn the nut - if it still won't come off then you may have to use some heat, and/or chemical penetrants, but make sure you are turning it the correct way first...

Cant get the crankshaft pulley off

It's most likely right hand thread. You will have to use a large breaker bar to get enought leverage to remove this nut. Or you can use what ever you have and place a steel pipe on the end of it for extra leverage. If it doesn't budge, you may have to soak it in penetrating oil, and use an impact wrench. Make sure you remove the large washer under the nut "before" you remove pulley.
