    When I put my Dominator Cam in, I had but the front tires back on and then cribbed them up so that I could tighten the cam bolt without the special tool. Many people think you put the car in 1st Gear but that is not correct, you put the car in 6th gear so that the "pulley ratio" is higher not lower, In 6th you are able to get more leverage.

    And as usual, god bless ModMini.
