Cam Cap Removal
Anybody ever had any trouble getting off the left intake cam cap? I decided to walk away and try it again tomorrow morning because I was getting pissed.
All the other caps came right off, including the left exhaust cap. I tried lifting the left caps straight up with the oil tube attached, but instead the front one popped off so I just slid the oil tube out of the rear cap and removed the front one along with the oil tube.
I'm still stuck with the left intake cap on the engine and it won't budge. I threaded the cover bolt into it so I could get a better grip and pull straight up and have tried pulling it straight up while tapping it with a non-metal hammer and trying to wiggle it around, but it seems to be on there good.
Mostly just venting, but if anybody has any tricks on getting that thing off, I'd be interested in hearing them. Unfortunately, I think the only method is to keep doing what I'm doing: can't pry on it or anything. I'll give it a shot again tomorrow.
