    Top timing cover

    Right to give you the background i was in the process of removing the top timing cover. i had taken the air box off taken the engine mount off. and it is the last bolt( lowest one closest to firewall) and all it does is spin on the spot.

    It seems as though the bolt itself goes in to a copper boss. that is the bot that is spinning. ive tried everything on it that i could think off. I tried gripping it. twisting it, pulling it but all to no avail .

    I have even tried a bit of leverage to try and get it out. Is there anything anyone can suggest to help me get this stubborn little ****er out?
    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot.
