Hi all, new to the forum,
Planning on changing the timing belt on 1998 1.25L Petrol Zetec engine.
Gathering tools and info at the moment and the info i have at the moment is as follows:
Bought Draper 61262 Camshaft/ Crankshaft locking tools, (Flat bar & TDC Crankshaft pin)
currently looking for flywheel locking tool for this engine,
currently looking for camshaft sprocket counter torque holding tool
considering on buying a Haynes manual for torque specs etc
As far as i know, the crankshaft sprocket is floating as well as the camshaft pulleys, So therefore i will need a torque wrench and an angular torque gauge for the crankshaft bolt, as well as for the camshaft pulleys.
I think i will need a flywheel locking tool for when i torque up the crankshaft bolt (without TDC locating pin inserted). I think i will also need a camshaft sprocket counter torque holding tool, (am i thinking its okay to leave the camshaft locking bar in place whilst using the camshaft holding tool?)
I have air tools to remove the crankshaft bolt as I've heard that it can be tough to get off.
And once i have fitted new belt, tightened all respective pulley bolts, align the tensioner to correct tension, then i rotate engine 2 revolutions then re-insert the timing tools to check.
Any comments or tips much appreciated.
