Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. You will need to use a special holding tool to keep the sprocket in place. This tool can be rented or purchased from an auto part store. Here I am supplying the replacement information for the timing components. On the first page you will see a list of required tools for this job. Let me see if I can get some information for you on this. One moment, please.

This tool is the MB990767 end yoke/cam holding tool. This tool is your best option for keeping the pulley aligned.
