exhaust cam bolt
 
Does anyone know where a good place to get a better exhaust cam timing gear bolt is? my exhaust cam is off time by a half tooth, tried to loosen it and stripped out the EXTREMELY shallow torx head. Besides habving to figure out how to remove this bolt I also need the better bolt I have seen people discuss before. All help is greatly appreciated!

ARP makes cam bolt kits for the focus. You can get it HERE at CFM

Thank you all for your help. Any ideas on how to get it out? the bolt head is completely stripped. I am figuring on taking the cam back out and using old timing belt to make a strap wrenh to hopefully use the gear to break the torque free. Any better ideas?

I hated that bolt so much. I just used a breaker bar and had a friend put a lot of pressure onto the end to keep it from slipping. It was pretty stripped already but I got lucky and it came loose. I replaced it with the ARP bolt from CFM.

Strap wrench = junk.

Pipe Wrench = teh ticket.

are you using the pipe wrench to grab exhaust cam gear? I have tried to get ahold of the bolt with a pipewrench, channel locks, vise grips with no avail. I would be a little worried to grip the teeth on the cam gear with a pie wrench in fear it would put grooves on the pully teeth and cause more wear on belt

thanx, i had my wife out there with me and that is what i have tried already. even tried to use a standard and metric allen to budge it and no luck. I DO plan on using the arp bolt once i get it out

If you tried a pipe wrench with no avail, you might have to weld a nut to the bolt and get it out that way. Unfortunately, isn't much else you can do.
