Good luck.
They can be a bitch doing it alone. All but the last one I took off came off with the impact gun. The last one I had to remove broke the alen bit for the gun. I had to use a 10mm alen key and a hammer with a second person holding the cam gear still with the old timing belt.

Thanks guys... we finally got it loose...

It took a miracle from GOD, a 6 foot cheater pipe, and 2 big oilfield rednecks to break them loose.... and the engine was on a stand....

Hard to believe that got that tight....

Thanks again!!!

Next time instead of steady force with a cheater bar. Shock an normal size alen wrench with a hammer, just make sure you go in the correct direction. Shock forces on a nut or bolt will break it loose a lot easier than a steady gradual build up like with the cheater bar.

We do not have a cam gear tool currently for the AVCS gears, but hopefully in the near to distant future. Having the correct tools really help the job go alot faster.
