You need to keep the crank from rotating in order to get the proper torque specs. You will need to use a Honda crank pulley tool to keep the crank from rotating. Or find another way to keep the crank from rotating. I have a crank tool so I'm not sure of the back yard mechanics way of doing this. Someone else will have to chime in.

Most people use an air gun to get it as tight as they can. I torque them on, but outside of the dealer and a few people like me, I've never seen anyone else torque them to proper specs because most people don't have a torque wrench that'll go up to 181 pounds which is the proper spec.

That's why you use a breaker bar, a little math, and stand on it.

If you have an old serpentine belt lyin around you can have a buddy hold it tight around the crank while you torque it.
