Engine Mechanical problem
1986 Mercedes Benz 300e 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 260000 miles

Is there a trick to getting off the alan head bolt that is on the tip of the camshaft behind the distributor & rotor?
I'm putting pressure on it to the left (counter clockwise). I am concerned that I might strip the alan head.
I'm using a 6mm alan which seems to be a little loose. Is there a 6.5mm?
Am I turning the correct way?

HELP!
