I had the one at the end of the cams. I just used a piece of flat stock I cut to the right size. The crank TDC peg how can I get one of these?

You don't need the crank TDC... just turn over your crank with a screwdriver in your cyl1/4 until you see the screwdriver hit TDC (top dead center). Don't move your engine... lock your cam in place horizontal.... put on your cam belt.... tighten your cam belt... tighten your cam sprockets... done! (now just dyno tune your cam retard/advance to get best #'s)

True you don't have to have it but would you rather do it right the first time?

Well I tried once and it was not right so now I want to do every step. I do not want to do this a third time so if I can find it I will use it.

call steeda or some other company that sells cams for the focus. they might have the TDC crank peg, and if not, they probably know where you can get one.
