What's up guys quick question for you guys. Doing another t-belt on a Wrx an when I did mine the driver side cams moved( should of seen my face when I took my belt off and they spun) well I was looking for the cam locking tool that holds the cams in place does anyone have any experience with using the 50$ company23 one. Thanks guys
Did just the top cam move? Once you put the new belt on and line up the marks you just rotate the cam until the line marks match up on the bottom and the cams stay in place as you route the belt the rest of the way. No real need for a special tool.
When I took the tension off the belt, I think both of mine moved a little. I just made sure to rotate them in the correct direction when reinstalling the new timing belt. The trick where he let the weight of the breaker bars hold the cam gears in place worked for me, although a second set of hands to hold things in place would probably have been a better idea.
