Default Cam Gear holder > where?

I'm trying to locate a cam gear "holder"

The unit that locks the cam gears in place for torquing them off.

Any links appreciated, thanks.

Impact or leave the belt on and hold crank with a 19mm then loosen them up

I know Mac Tools and Matco make one. I think the Mac Tools one is a Honda engine specific billet piece and the Matco one is a universal for DOHC motors.

Maybe the Mac Tools guy will come by your place.

Then I got it backwards. Regardless, they are a pretty penny.

you can also use a pin punch to hold the cams in place when both cams are at tdc on cyl 1.

I use a coil over wrench to hold the cam gear. Works perfect.

There is a new company that is making a cam gear holder that is pretty nice...
They are just finalizing the packaging material and will release the product soon.

We'll have them available on the site.. soon so you can check em out.

Wow! $260 is a little pricey! Nice tool though.

Thanks for all the replies guys.

Looks decent. I may just impact everything off, but I still like the idea of a lock.

The blue one is made by Lisle. It's universal so the fit won't be as good as the fixed units. But it works.
