    You should be holding the cam with either a 3/8" ratchet in the back of the cam or if its an aftermarket they have a place for a open ended wrench. I wouldn't hold the crank, thats a lot of stress on your chains/tensioners etc. Very good way to get a tooth to jump. Cam gear bolts are 82-95ft lbs.
