    I recall there were some industrious guys who even used a 3/8" socket extension, can't remember if it was 6 or 8" or 10" one.

    I use a piece of 2X4. Always worked for me and it doesn't cost $50

    I believe the OP is referring to the transmission output (belt) pulley nut. Not the primary chain compensator nut.
