Tool for locking Duratec flywheel

Hello,

Does anyone have a picture of the flywheel locking tool for Duratec engine?
I just found tool for zetec engines on the market.
I need to remove the timing cover and have to lock the flywheel to remove the pulley bolt.

Thanks

Usually for removing the crank pulley, there is a tool that goes into the slots to hold it back.

I made a fixed bolt version of this:


There is also this design:

I think this will not work for duratec. It will work to remove the pulley only.

To bolt the pulley back to the crank may not work, I need to keep the crank in a steady state, so this way it won't force the timing tools.

I'm looking for some tool to lock the flywheel, do you know any that work with duratec?

The only tool I know for locking the flywheel only bolts onto the block without the transmission. Perhaps if you removed the started you could make something to go there.

But to my knowledge, Ford procedures don't require locking the flywheel. There are some alignment dowels for ensuring at TDC (one through the pulley, one through side of block), but they aren't designed for holding the crank.

if your looking to remove the bolt there is a trick that I used..... kinda hard to explain without video.....
grab an old serpentine belt, wrap it around the crank pulley and one of the accessory pulleys. (there is now alot of slack) pull slack of the belt around the crank pulley so as you go to break the bolt the pulley turns counter-clockwise and the belt overlaps onto itself. once the belt overlaps it will hold the pulley in place. its really hard to explain clearly but there are a few youtube videos from some "old timers".

I have done this on multiple engines, the only thing is you now have to retime you crank but that's easy.

removing is a pita without a good impact, I use a soft rope stuff in the combustion chamber.
but for the reassembly only use the timing bolt and it's good

btw, there is A LOT of torque on this bolt lol there's the reason why you have to change it every time you remove it
