Default Installing Cams in a 2006 Jackpot. Anybody have any suggestions?

Anybody out there have any hints or suggestions before I start changing cams in a week? The rear cylinder looks very close to the frame. Any special tools needed? Any input would be helpful.

Hello, I have 2010 vegas 8 ball. I removed throttle body, fuel rail and air intake rubber to make clearance to remove valve cover. It came off jiggling towards front of vegas. You will need a strong Neodymiun magnet to withdraw pin from cam carrier.

Was your magnet a disk style? Was that strong enough?

There was no pin in my motor. Just bolts on the cam carrier to be loosened
