Infiniti Mechanic: john aka eautp, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

have you tried ordering form a Nissan or infinity parts counter...they can order one in for you.. I am unaware of any other source besides the dealer or techmate

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I tried that and it's out of stock. That's why I was hoping to buy or rent one from you guys.
Infiniti Mechanic: john aka eautp, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

yea sorry to say we do not rent or sell tools on here... Have you asked your local dealers service manager if he would rent you theres?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, I thought it might be a bit of a slap in the face since they don't get the $3000 worth of labor out of me. I guess it doesn't hurt to ask especially if I'm buying the parts from them.
Infiniti Mechanic: john aka eautp, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

hey a little cash in the service managers pocket could be a bonus for him... especially if ya give him a security deposit to cover the tool if ya break it or loose it etc etc

Hello, The special tool to remove it pulls it out of the block just grabs the oil jet to pull it out You may be able to use some sort of slide hammer to remove it. The really key tool is the one that installs it. It puts the oil jet in the perfect direction. I would see if you can leave a deposit to borrow the dealers tool. The return the tool to get your deposit back.

Here is a video to show you all the timing chain marks to ensure it's all lined up properly. Once all the chains are lined up, you want to disable the fuel system and turn the engine over to build oil pressure to the tensioners. Other wise, the chain could jump a tooth or 2. It is important to install the updated crank gears other wise you may time the engine incorrect and cause engine damage.
