So spin em back to where there is tension or the cam actually wont spin anymore? For the intake that is 12 o clock. ANd the exhaust is 6. If that is what you mean.
Still doesnt answer my question regarding removal. Do I need to take off the valve cover? I am really trying to avoid that but if that is the only way. I would rather try an offset adjustable wrench that would fit into the inset of the cam gear and then try using a cheater bar. THe thing is only supposedly 30-40 lb ft but it seems a little more than that.
