Thread: Hold those Cams!

  1. #1

    Question Hold those Cams!

    I have see the cool tool Blackroadster has for helping with a timing belt change. (see below)

    I have also seen the 2 crescent wrenches tied together with a clamp to hold the cams.

    But is there a tool (or better yet a drawing of a tool) to hold the cams in a similar setup to the 2 wrenches and a clamp method??

    If you were as slow as me, you wouldn't be afraid either.

    There is also the binder clip method. Line up the cams and hold the belt in place with those little binder clips. I've used this method too and it's easy and simple. Easier than the wrenches with vise-grips IMHO.

    Kind of like this but instead of zip ties, binder clips.

    ...and across the line.

    BTW, If you want to borrow the tools, let me know.

    Is there a source to buy the tool to hold the crank pulley bolt shown in the first photo of this thread (the bottom tool). I've never had a problem with the cams but the lower bolt tool would be a great help.

    I've found a drawing showing the dimensions, but if some sells these already made, I like to get one.
