You will need a timing pin and steelbar 5mm thick to lock the camshafts

got mine from local motor factors

Be aware that there is no wood ruff key on a 1.4 , so use of a timing pin is essential , also the torque of the bottom pulley is critical a new bolt is recommended , i've known quite a few people use locktite as well.
