Does any one have a cam lock tool for use on the 2.2 that they wish to sell?

+1 I do the same and I think I would do the same even if I had the cam lock tool.

No, clamp the belt belt to each of the gears. Keep in mind you want it to be a vice-grip with smooth jaws so it doesn't put marks on the belt.

what holds the gears when you're replacing the belt then? sorry if it's an obvious answer, I'm just having trouble visualising.

The cams will move but only slightly. Basically you clamp the belt to the intake gear the move it to position. Then move the exhaust cam to position and clamp the belt to the exhaust gear.

The belt being clamped to the two gears typically keeps the cams in the proper position. Then you can set the belt on the crank gear. ...and always turn the motor over by hand a full revolution to confirm allignment.


There's no doubt that if the proper lock tool is available then it's the best option and will save a ton of time and effort. One tool is easily worth $50 in my opinion.
