3RZ intake cam bolt RIGHT or LEFT-handed thread?

I'm suspecting it's a left-handed thread. Can anyone confirm right or left? The manual doesn't say that I've seen.

Thanks,
Kurt

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

It's right-handed. It took more like 150-200 ft-lb to break it loose; it's supposed to be torqued to 54 ft-lb.

Thanks,
