Default R65 flywheel locking tool

Anyone got a flywheel locking tool for a K series engine with R65 box? Need to do the cambelt on my daily, wondered if anyone's got one spare before I buy/make one.

Just a cam locking tool is plenty.

Cut the old belt in half length ways in situ with a Stanley. Take the outside peice off, slide new belt half on. Chop remaining old belt, slide new one the rest of the way on.

No locking tool, no aligning anything. Bish bash bosh. Done.

I’ve heard people mention this method before, a camshaft locking tool can be had for about £5, I’d rather spend that than mess about trying to cut through all the teeth on the pulley’s.

Planning to do the belt, water pump, and tensioner.

Already got a cam locking tool, figured there was room for movement of the crank when taking the crank pulley off to get the new belt on.

To be honest Paul, you might need a tiny bit of movement. They don't always just lock exactly in the correct place to get everything lined up. The thing is to check the marks at least twice after fitting it and rotate the engine 2 full turns and check again before trying to start it.

After doing quite a few of these in the past, you seem to find the right hand cam wheel looks half a tooth up when it's on correctly. There is nothing you can really do about this as they are set with the keyway. If this is the case, it's quite normal. Just don't leave it a full tooth out!

Doing the job now, locked it with the cam tool and it's not enough to undo the crank bolt. Crank pulley is slipping on the cam belt.

You need the car on the ground on all the wheels. Put it in 5th and handbrake on. You can undo the bolt then.
If the car moves, you need an assistant to press the brakes.

That bolt is the tightest on the car. It's just off the max of my torque wrench!

Got there in the end. Jammed a bar between the brake pedal and the drivers seat, stuck it in 5th and jumped on the breaker bar.

Been eyeing up impact guns for ages, maybe I'll splash out soon!
