Question about 1993 Lexus Es 300
Right hand thread, just tight. You need to hold the cam itself with something solid, don't rely on the timing belt, then if you have a 3/8 impact gun, carefully rattle the bolt out. If you don't have the impact gun available, you could try getting someone to hold the cam while you put the box end of a wrench on the bolt and tap the open end. When tapping, I wouldn't use a hammer, it's too massive, use a small steel bar, like a 1/2 inch extension about ten inches long. The idea is to set up small impacts that loosen the bolt, without twisting the cam.
