Default camshaft removal/installation

well the motor came out nicely. so far i have taken everything off down to the block and have put the new heads on. I am about to put a cam in and was wondering, before i try, how does the cam come out of there? i have the timing cover and the chain removed, is there a trick to getting it to slide out?

To help in the removal and installation, I made tool for that. Bought a $1.50 hammer handle and a combonation lag screw with I believe the 5/16" thread on the other end. Lag screw into the hammer and screw that onto the cam. Makes it a lot easier to remove and install. Be careful not to bang the cam lobes into the cam bearings.

i bet you did it when you were installing your E cam

FWIW,one of the bolts from the harmonic balancer puller just so happened to thread into mine perfectly when i did it..so i just used a 6-8 long bolt to remove and install mine

Well I did know they sell them but I'm a cheap sob and I still have a good hammer handle to use when I'm done!
