Default 1985 6.2l diesel g3500 crank pulley re:re

I'm changing the crank pulley. I have no a/c so it has 2 grooves. I've read in a few forums you can stop the crank from turning by disconnecting battery(so engine doesn't start), parking brake on and put vehicle in gear. I found this didn't work, crank would still turn. I tried the ratchet strap over the balancer but it wouldn't stop crank from turning while trying to remove pulley bolts.
So duhhhhh... My buddy told me to put breaker bar on balancer bolt to hold crank and sure enough I could crack the pulley bolts.
BUT.... To put on pulley can I do same thing you think ?? Balancer nut is like 200 ft/ lbs while the pulley torques to 37 or something like that. I doubt I'd loosen the balancer bolt eh??
