	The cam bolt is not nearly as tight as the crank bolt if you have an
impact gun it can be used if the grill is removed.If you dont have one
an ugly method would be to remove the valve cover and use vise grips on
the cam(I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS!!!). The factory has a special tool
which has two pins about 10mm in dia welded to a bar that fit into the
holes of the cam gear to keep it from turning.
Good luck.
