Can you share how do you break loose the crank bolt?
Beefy impact + a Lisle Honda Crank Socket is what I used. Other options are using the Honda crank holder, a large pry bar, and long pipe to get better leverage. I have a 6 foot pipe that I use for my Lexus timing belt one. Wear safety goggles.

Yep. This is exactly what I used back in 2014 when I did the first TB. Broke two extensions with a weight of two adults that were a bit overwheight (myself included).

Wear safety goggles.
Most definitely!

my experience breaking that bolt loose on an 04 Pilot, 06 Civic and 09 MDX is it takes about 1000 ft-lbs to break it loose the first time. I have an air compressor with an impact wrench rated at 1000 ft-lbs, I run a straight air line without quick disconnects to avoid loses.
