Spider trwin cam locking kit

Please Help!
I have stripped the cam belt on my Alfa Spider twin cam 2.0 litre TS (1997)
To replace the belt I need to lock the cams in the right relative position and there aren't any timing marks on the engine.
I am told I need a locking kit but can't beg, borrow or even buy one !
Is there any way round this ?

Hi David,

You are correct about the locker's being needed.

I think this was covered a while back and then it went along the lines of....unless you are highly competent at changing timing belts/tensioners, I'd leave it to a specialist to say those engines are a tad complex is an understatement!

Sorry probably not what you wanted to hear but may be someone can still help I may be wrong?

The problem is , that you are in Dorset, and any one that I would recomend would be in LOndon, so I too cannot help you. Lets see what happens.
Good luck

Hi I recently purchased locking tools off of eBay, they were delivered within a week and worked perfectly
