Have you tried shooting some PBBlaster at the bolt, let it sit for a 15-20 minutes and then try?

He's right, might have to get that badboy to a garage to get a bolt welded to it.

I have had 2 that I couldnt get off / stripped is why they came to me , I took a sharp chisel and locked the cam gear with a big screw driver through the hole in the gear and rested it on the head then gave it some serious smacks in the direction of loosening it and they cams right off
A nut welded to the outside of the old bolt works good to

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

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

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
