Which way to turn the cam nut to loosen?

Standing at the front of the car looking at the engine- left or right?

Thanks,
Duke

Normal RH thread direction. Viewed from in front of the car, counterclockwise. Viewed from the driver's seat, clockwise. They normally are not killer tight.

Thanks, Andrew!

I'm happy to say the car is running again! Just took it for a 1/2 hour long thrashing, I mean Italian tune up...no leaks.

One thing which did make my heart sink was that the air filter housing clip came loose nearest the alternator and sounded like something was coming apart. I got off the road and popped the hood, looked around and almost started laughing when I saw the problem.

Great to be back in the saddle again.

Thanks for all your help!

Duke
