I am working on my second car. 07 outback 2.5 I 5 speed. The cam pulley bolt won't come loose on the right cam. Could it have left hand threads? I just finished my 05 2.5 I last week and had no trouble. I have tried clamping the old timing belt but it just rips. This bolt seems ridiculous tight.

Did you use one of the specialty tools, like from Company23, or the "old belt method" ???

Glad you got it :)

I used the old belt but the belt kept ripping and breaking. With the very last section long enough to reach anything it finally broke free.
