Front Cam Seals and Caps

Took the timing belt and timing gears back off the car to get the front cam caps off and deal with the two sheared bolts. Got the cam caps off with much wiggling while applying an upward force with a vice grip. Took some work but got them both off. To my surprise one of the sheared bolts was loose and i was able to get the other out by backing it out with a punch and a hammer. No drilling and using an ez out necessary thankfully.  Replaced the front cam seals while the  caps were off.  Now just need to pick up new cam cap bolts and get them in.
