Default CamClamp for replacing timing belt.

Any one use a Camclamp to aid in replacement of there timing belt on a 2.0?



Any techs out there with exp with this tool would be helpful. i'm thinking of buy two.
Currently i've been using a different style lock at work "the one below" and i'm thinking its to big for the subaru sprockets. "i work mostly on domestics" $$$
any info would be geat.




this guy has made timing belt jobs a breeze --- cutting time in half, and not having to set to tdc or worrie about things moving and bent valves. I've tried searching for some info and cant believe there is no info on this board about this.
all the ?s about timming and bent valves---- tools like this make things trouble free.

I just use a couple of C clamps when I do the timing. Ofcourse I'm no Subaru Technician, but they worked pretty well keeping everything from spinning on me.

Nice-lookin' TransAm.

What I've used for timing belts is just plain spring clamps from the lumber/woodworking area at the hardware store. I think they cost me $10-15(?) for 4 of them (2 pairs of 2 different sizes).

I line it up properly before I take the belt off. Then to hold the belt on the driver side cam I just use small thin vice grips. It's pretty simple really. But then again I do these fairly frequently.

That trans am is a pretty rare bird. My dad's got an 87 gta with paddle mirrors. One of ~200 with 50k miles. Its good to see another well kept third gen.
