Is anyone looking for the TDC pin and Crank alignment tools? I used this site to get the info to buy them a few years back and got rid of the car before I needed them (and I got a mechanic do the work for me... )

I don't have enough posts to submit in the for sale thread yet. PM me if you have been looking for them. They are the SPX tools.

Lightbulb Not that I will try it... VIDEO to go with Write Up

Not that I will try anytime soon...

The write up was so good I thought about buying the tools to try the job myself. But, I need something done in a reasonable period of time and someone to blame if it all goes wrong.


VIDEO I found on YT -- might work well with the more detailed write up.

I've done several without loosening sprockets and no trouble at all. Just roll motor around a couple of times (pull that TDC pin!) and recheck marks and watch the tensioner roller while doing it. Getting tensioner a bit too tight is what causes 90% of belt walking on these.

When removing the crankshaft pulley, is it necessary for the pin and the cam alignment tool to be in place?

Yep, using that resource already. Just trying to remove the crank shaft pulley and didn't know if the timing tools needed to be inserted at this step.

NO!

Absolutely not. The timing tools are meant for line up only and NO STRESS put on them AT ALL. If you break that pin off in case you will be pulling major parts and maybe even the engine if you are unlucky that day. The camtool bar is not made for pulling against either, it will roll up like a pretzel if you turn motor against it.

Got that? You CANNOT use those tools to hold motor in place, be stupid enough to do it and you'll wish you hadn't. Sorry, but no other way to put it................

Now that's what I call an answer!! I appreciate the response. There are several write up and videos out there that I've been going by and this seems to be a step that was unclear. I'll be finishing up this a.m. THANKS!!!!
