2.5 cam cap bolts frozen
Posted 08 January 2013 - 11:12 PM
The driver side cam cap bolts are frozen. Cracked a craftsmen socket 1/4 inch. And then broke teeth off a 3/8ths rachet. After I snapped one trying to remove it I stoped. The heads have not been done as far as I can tell. 125k miles. Anyone have any ideas or have had this happen to them? There just 10pm bolts supposed to be 14ft 8 for front caps. These bolts are welded into the head. I'm guessing due to it being over heated. Passenger side head was r&r in 45 minutes. Now I'm stuck. Any advice would be great. I don't wanna use a torch too much oil and stuff in the way. I'm ready to cut the caps off and get a used head/cams
