Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1.3L engine that camshaft is seized in, breaker bar cannot turn camshaft even with all
valves no longer attached. Distributor casing removed and gear pulley removed from each end of cam. Manual seems to indicate that you can just push the camshaft out in the direction on the distributor side but even tapping bolt head on other side does not move it. 1) how to get camshaft out? 2) what could cause this

If it has seized in the head then you had better be looking for a replacement cylinder head. Loss of top end oil pressure is the usual cause for this condition.
