a thin nut like that, use ignition wrenches, there thin.. some dollar stores also sell cheap wrenches made out of pressed steel ( like 10ga ) and there quite thin.. I used to have a set and they worked great for that but I'v since lost them somewhere

You have to use the MC Escher wrench. Its only available from these stores.

You must use a gas operated torque wrench. Tell the folks at the Escher store that you want the propane model.

Good job Duncan.

That nut is used in a new cam design for fastening the modular lobes and is in fact based on the Ambihelical Hexnut - used on the Low Lift Bounce Flow (LLBF) cam. This cam bounces the valve at low lift only and requires extensive modification to the lifter valley and valve train parts. One benefit of the LLBF is enhanced cylinder filling at low lift, simple enough. The cam is a modular design known as a Modular Mobius Grind (MMG) and is a nighmare to clearance for any application. Here is a 'lobe' for the MMG LLBF Cam...

If you could find an old Mobius flip-flop wrench on Ebay or somewhere, that might fit it.
