    sheared off cam bolt

    Hey guys,
    am i going to have to pull the head? a cam gear bolt sheared off. i would assume these are interference motors.

    I would only think you would have to remove the rockers and the remaining gear bolts and pull out the cam. well some other bits too, but I dont think the head would need removing

    isn't this an interference engine? it happened on the trailer at the dealership, they deny it so i don't know what kind of rpm it was seeing. might have been on idle not sure...

    i dont think they are grade 8 either but i doubt the head will have to come off. you should be able to get the other 2 out, release the cam chain tensioner, get the cam gear off, slide the cam out... blah blah blah and remove the broken bolt and it may be a wresteling match but you should be able to get it
