Uncooperative VVTs during timing belt install.

Post by RickHaleParker »

If you have one of the VVTs that can move as you install the timing belt. You can use a cheap universal timing gear clamp. To lock the VVTs in place. This is not a substitute for locking the cams with a Volvo camshaft lock. It supplements the Volvo camshaft lock.
