Your looking for a socket to turn a 4.6L engines crank by turning the crank pulley bolt on the front of the engine?

y not use the 18mm socket to go on the crank pulley bolt and turn it by hand like that?
thats how i turned my crank when i did my timing chain on my stang, i just used a regular 6 point socket and a breaker bar nothing more than just normal hand tools.

If the short block has a harmonic balancer or crank pulley in other words the pulley has a bolt. On my motor it was a 18mm socket i used if i were u try to see what socket matches up to it try 17 18 and 19 mm sockets those are common sizes and are not hard to find. If the short block doesnt have a crank pulley then best bet is put a bolt with spacers on tje crank so u can turn the crank. I suggest doing it with the pulley since rhe pulley has a groove for which the cranks shaft slides right in and locks down a bit more securely
