the tool is very simple, the tool is a plastic wedge that you hammer to hold the timeing chains up while you change out the cams

yea i think a twin screw would make up for that power down low, basically i just need somethin to wedge the timing chain, so my timing doesnt get screwed up? i think id just rather pay for the install rather than screwing it up myself

hear ya there, it is always better to have someone else have to deal with that kind of headache. If the chains do slip then you have to pull the front cover off the motor and that means everything has to come off the front the motor

couldnt you just mark the gear and the chain and if it slips off just put it back on...just wondering...

in theory yes but it all needs to be timed with the crank, you would have to put the crank at top dead center and set the chains with the cams in there respective spots
