(1) Timing belt tensioner / idler pulley tool
highest quality (MADE IN THE USA) cam bearing/timing belt
tensioner/idler pulley tool. Whatever your terminology, this tool is Amazing and Simple!!!
Fits all Water-cooled VW/Audi Engines
to 1997: CIS, Jetronic, Digifant, EFI, OBD 1, OBD 2 - 1997 J, K, Motronic, Carbureted, Diesel, Turbo Diesel; all engines.
Take a look in the photo. You will see 2
small pins on the end of the tool. Now remember those 2 little holes
in the cam bearing/tensioner? The 2 pins lock into the cam bearing and
rotate it around the off-center retaining bolt, increasing or decreasing
tension on the belt. Eureka! So that's what those holes were for all
along. And all this time you thought you had a high-performance, light-weight ,cam bearing... When I say this tool makes quick work
of the job, it's an understatement!
After I used this once, I
felt silly for wasting so much time in the past; struggling without
it! Imagine trying to hold pressure on the belt tensionser with your hands (or
whatever else you can grab to hold the belt tension long enough) before
it loses that critical appropriate twist tension. Finally, after it
slips a tooth a few times and you realign the pulley-marks, you tighten down the nut only to see it is still too loose or too tight... So
you start all over again.
