Default 3VZE camshaft tool needed

Hi guys. I've got one leaky camshaft seal, and thought I'd change it while I'm changing the water pump and timing belt. I can't get the bolt off, though, even with a 1/2" impact.

Does anyone have the SST, or a homemade equivalent, they'd like to rent out? I'll happily fetch and return it.

Thanks,

Mark

Here is how I got it done. There are some photos of my levers in use.

Cool use of a toe and heal bar. I have used a pry bar (plastic handled one), and put it though the hole under the 12mm head of the bolt to loosen and tighten these cam pulleys on different toyota and other manifactures when replacing the seal. Good luck on what you do.

That is cool. Did you use the same tool and procedure to tighten it?
