Default Re: camshaft nut problems

I use 2 slats of wood 3/8 x 1-1/2 inches about 2-1/2 inches long. Place the slats on both sides of the timing gear and secure them with a "C" clamp. The bottom of the inside slat will come to rest on the pan and stop the timing gear from turning. I use an air impact wrench on the real tight cam nuts. This is a last resort, however, it always works for me.
