wow, break it!! i've done a ton of these cam caps so I'm accustomed to them being tight, this one doesn't turn without stout hammer blows. it was dark and i was not able to pry so i'll get on that next time.
Might have to break it. Pry and turn at the same time usually works for me.

Sounds like you mean the cam sprocket thing on the front outside of the engine?
Further back where it's aluminum to aluminum with the skinny Oring on a 95.
Or what I usually call a cam cap - what 3 of them holding the cam onto the head.

A rubber mallett has always worked for me.

I never thought about that, and it is very important if you think about it. I'm just hoping that, with the timing belt removed, the camshaft would turn towards the unloaded position by itself.
make shure the cam is in unloaded position
