Maybe I am missing something, why not down shift? It looks like a solution looking for a problem to me.
Then again even the FM roads here are 65 and 70mph with lots of 75mph speed limits on the major highways thrown in for a good mix.

Default Front Pulley Nut Removal

The impact gun is the easiest and most effective. The nut is not only real tight, but HD uses Red Loctite as well. A breaker bar and cheater pipe is still tough.
Locktite suggests heating the nut (you can see this on YouTube) but with the right tools you can do it without the heat.
You need to hold the pulley from turning, the brake/belt and engine primary and chain adjuster allow "play" which looses much of the "impacts" from the gun.
There are special 1-7/8" sockets available with 1/2" drive (1-7/8" is typically a 3/4" drive) and toothed Pulley Holders available to make this job easier.

$28.00 for the 1 7/8" socket & reducer. Have to see if I can beg or borrow one.

The nut is thin. It's best to grind back the socket to remove the tapered leade they all have so you get good engagement on the nut. Get the sprocket holder too.

I've been using the sprocket holder, a 3/4 drive breaker bar, a 4" 3/4 drive extension, a 4' cheater, and a scissors jack run up to sit under the head of the breaker bar to keep the socket and extension aligned and in place. You're looking at 250+ lbs/ft of torque following the FSM's 50 lb/ft + 30-40 degrees more rotation.

We have a kit with a holder and a special socket (only 1-1/2" tall, !/2" drive & no taper). This is a lot easier to use than 4 lbs of socket sticking off the nut 4".

I received my 28 tooth pulley today. My indy won't lend me his socket, so I'll have to buy one. I can fabricate a pulley stop/block out of wood if I study what's there. I am going to get into it next rain day . 250 lbs of torque? wow that's a lot!

I edited my post, 4 FOOT cheater on the breaker bar. I fabricate special tools as needed when I can but the sprocket holder I bought. I'm glad I did. It really works well.

I used the second side of a jack handle on my breaker bar and held the rear brake with my foot. Came off fairly easy , just a little fight because of the loctite.
