You need a flywheel holder (also called a flywheel turner) to keep the engine from spinning. This engages the teeth on the ring gear. Usually it requires two people - one to hold the flywheel and one to deal with the balancer. You can try removing the starter. Sometimes you can insert a rod or screwdriver into a hole in the flywheel and lock it up against the block.
