Re: Am I headed for a huge repair bill?

Yeah, id like to smack that engineer in the back of the head that put that bolt there behind the timing cover [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Just soak it the best you can with blaster or other top quality penetrant and work it the best you can.
I have yet to find a tool that will get in there good with out stripping the top of the motor (a/c, dist, etc) just a good 12 point wrench to loosen & the rest with your fingers [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Be sure to put anti-sieze on it before you stick it back in, it`ll make it a lot easier the next time...

Yeah, me too. I was thinking to myself...with all the room in this engine compartment, they had to do something stupid like that. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] I tried to get a box end wrench on it, but couldn't turn it. There's just no room! I'd have to spin the distributor around to get the electrical connector out of the way....Ok, now I'm just venting...
