Bought this tool for doing my timing belt. The supplied male pieces did NOT fit into the female hex bolt on the camshaft sprocket. You can imagine my puzzlement. I wanted to return this tool but decided it would be more useful to make it work. I took a file and filed the male pieces down bit by bit until the male piece would fit into the hex bolt enough, holding the camshaft sprocket in place. After I made it fit, the tool worked fine. Just beware that this tool may not fit out of the box. Seems like no one else has had this issue but me.

I had to re-seal my leaking oil pump, and remembered that I had bought this tool months ago for a timing belt job. Extremely grateful to have it, no issues when locking the driver side cams (I think the intake cam moved a millimeter). If you are not familiar with what this tool does, it basically holds the cams in place and prevents them from spinning when the belt is removed. These cams are under valve tension, and spin out out of timing easily. The Passenger side cams are not under any tension. I would highly recommend picking one of these up if you are doing a timing belt job, or anything that requires removing the belt.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Q: 2012 Subaru WRX   Ethan WRX2 years ago

    Using this tool, would I have to re-time the engine or is it as simple as place tool on remove, belt and other components, and install new belt and components. Or would you turn the engine by the crank pulley for the gear timing marks to align and then install tool.
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  You would line up all the timing marks on the gears then put this in place on the drivers side cam gears. You are then able to take off the old belt and install the new belt and idlers/pulleys.

  • Q: How many?  capilarybinkie4 years ago

    Since there are 2 sides, would I need to purchase 2 of these? Or does it come with both?
    • 1 of 1 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This tool is for the LH side only (from driver's perspective). You can use this tool for both sides of the engine however, the right side cams are not under any valve spring load at TDC for cylinder #1 and will not move on their own like the left side will.

  • Q: AVCS compatability   Foxerwith923615 years ago

    Didn't see a specification, will this work with AVCS too?
    • 0 of 0 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  This does work with engines that have no AVCS, Intake AVCS, and Dual AVCS. The included spacer is needed to manage the offset of the cam sprocket height on engines with Intake AVCS only. Hope that helps!

  • Q: A bit confused here!  PhilBarnak6 years ago

    So you dont need this tool for the left cams right ? if ive read right the passager cams can turn freely with no problems..? but different story for the driver side.?
    • 2 of 2 people found the following answer helpful

      A:  The LH cams of the engine refers to the left side of the engine from the driver's perspective (or the right side if looking at the engine from the front of the car). Only the LH cams require this tool because when the engine is at TDC for cylinder #1, the cam lobe is compressing a valve spring and the cam will snap into a relaxed position when the belt is removed. This tool holds the LH cams in place so they can't rotate. The RH cams are not compressing a valve spring in this position and therefore do not need to be held with a tool.

      A:  The passenger side cams usually do not move when you remove the timing belt, but the driver side cams are under load and will jump when the timing belt is removed.

  • Q: Placement  CraftyCraft6 years ago

    This is for the USDM's driver side, right? The LH description is throwing me off from what I have been reading. Can you confirm?
