If you're going to put a new variator on then we've found that a bench vice, with some wood to protect the cam and a big "Pipe Wrench" is think you guys call it over there, does the job of getting it off without harming anything except the old variator. Then tighten the new one with 2 strong bolts and a piece of pipe or something. I use my socket set's power bar. With the thread locking compound in its allot harder to take it off then to put it back on.
As for timing, the only option is the cam locking tools and clock gauge for TDC. I’ve heard that there is a write up on here somewhere on how to do this without the cam locks, but I’ve never seen it and I’m not sure how far to trust that.
