macdiesel Isn't the exhaust cam like a shallow torx? I can see how it would strip. Glad the bolt released itself.

6SPD_soul I wasn't aware this was a common problem, that bolt never gave me any trouble at all. The right Torx bit seems like a very good fit. I guess I can see if it slipped once it could be done for.

Congrats on getting it out though, that's probably a relief to be done with it.

slim02svt I got out this morning and used an old timing belt,wrapped the gear used an 18in pipe wrench on the gear making sure to have the bite over the gear spokes and it twisted right out. I used the belt to protect the gear and made sure to have the wrench bite on the supported part of the gear and it worked like a charm. was using a combo wrench to hold the cam at the same time. thanx to all who gave advice it is greatly appreciated

slim02svt That is going to be my plan b. I just did not have it in me to take a chisel and beater to it just yet. I have a welder at the house and thanks for the suggestion, that is one that i did not think of yet

sleepyboy Tom's idea sounds like the one I'd use

tukaniSVT None of that sounds like fun ... good luck with finding a solution to getting it off.
