2.5 24v cam belt
I have a question.
I am changing the cambelt on a 156 24v and the manual says I need a DTI to detect TDC.
My question is if I have the cams locked with the proper locking tools, why would I need to detect TDC beforehand?
I took the plug out of no.1 and inserted a long screwdriver and checked it's movement while slowly turning the engine THEN fitted the cam locks.
Surely this is sufficient?
Have I missed something here???
