I am trying to remove the inner torx on the cam shafts. I took the larger 15/16 bolt off without aproblem reverse thread.
The video I saw, Nathan’s Garage, has the inner Torx beingreverse thread as well. Try as I might,its not budging and I am reluctant to wrench on it to hard for fear of damagingthe cam shaft. I am securing it with awrench on the back side of the shaft.
So is the inner torx reverse thread as well? If so its not budging. The 15/16 nut came off with little effort.
Help!

It’s insanely tight, I had same issue. Use a 27mm open end to hold the cam and try an impact gun if you have enough room. Otherwise keep going with a breaker bar.

Should be, as long as it is all the way retarded. When finished turn the engine over a few times and recheck timing with the vamps wheel jig and cam locks.

You seem to be moving fast, good luck with timing. Beisan Systems helps
