Default manually turning the crankshaft

hi again... so I got my head back from the machine shop and am putting the timing belt back on.. but how do you guys turn the crank shaft... I was able to do it by hand to get to tdc, but I'm not gonna be able to do two full revolutions like that... do I really need some special tool???

Hello, Haynes manual, says you can use a breaker bar with a socket. also remove all spark plugs it will make it easier to rotate the engine by hand.

A 19mm socket on the balancer bolt and a 1/2" ratchet wrench or breaker bar. Be sure to turn clockwise...
