Default Special tools

Iíve always used a clutch alignment tool, bit rubbish the first time you use it but once itís set up itís simple enough, Iíve just pinched an input shaft from Andrew so I can cut it down and have a dedicated tool for the job, I see how Andrewís idea works but Iíd prefer to use a tool and have easier access to all the bolts rather than having to turn the engine manually to get to each bolt.
You want an E12 torx socket for the headbolts.
Thereís a camshaft locking tool for locking the timing in place when you do a belt change.
Canít think of any other tools that are non standard.
