Decompressor Bolt

Recommended Posts

whats the point of loosening the decompressor bolt when taking the cam out. i was looking through my service manual and i read that. does anyone know what the purpose of loosening it? wouldnt it make it harder to get out with less clearance between it and the side of the head?

They tell you to loosen it while it is still in IF you are going to service it. It is a bitch to loosen it once the cam is out as there is no way to hold the cam from spinning.

oh ok i gotcha. yea i guess it would be hard to take out when there is loctite on the threads and nothing to hold it.
