I'm doing a head swap, and I'm really close to having the head off, but the dumb bolts holding the cam gear onto the front of the cam are stripped out it seems. Can I knock out a link on the timing chain and get it off that way? What's my best solution to this? :confused:

had the same problem when we were tearing my extra motors down last month. we couldnt find a master link, but maybe you have one? had to find a 6 point allen that was just the right size so that it didnt quite fit inside, but it could be pounded in with a light hammer... then if you manage to get it in straight they didnt seem to come out that hard

YYAAAAYYY!!!
Got it out. I had to use a lot of swear words and a 12mm box-end ratchety wrench. I beat it on with the help of a long socket and a hammer, and it came off pretty nice.
I'm sure I'll be doing a wheelie in it by tomorrow!
