1.3 8v cam pully removal
I have an '88 1.3, I'm in the process of replacing timing belt cover, seals, water pump etc.
The issue I'm having is that I haven't been able to loosen/remove the retaining bolt for the cam timing pulley. Ive tapped a wrench and a 12" long rachet handle with a hammer as well as used my air impact to break it loose. So far, nothing. (Ive been easy on it with the impact, the last thing I want to do is break the blot or strip the head), I know its way tighter than it should be---my question is---has anyone seen this before and what about heating the bolt (would that be acceptable?)
