L24 Cam sprocket nut removal

    Recommended Posts

    Someone help!

    I'm trying to remove the camshaft sprocket nut but when I turn it, the motor turs over. I tried putting a wrench on the crank sprocket, but the engine still turns. How do I keep this from happeining?

    Thanks.

    I tried to put in gear, but it still turns.

    Put the wrench on the flywheel. Or if the motor is still in the car put it in gear.

    Yes, put a wrench on the flywheel, or if you have a wrench that fit's very well, you can try to hit it with a mallet to shock it.

    i would use an impact

    Agreed! I used the screwdriver/wrench trick on the first Z motor I tore down which didn't work so I end up having to buy an impact wrench. I would look back either! Way easier and faster to do many things now including swapping wheels. :)
