2.0 JTS Cambelt Change Advice

I want to change the belt on my JTS, I note that the tensioning procedures for the 2.0 Twinspark guides recommend losening the inlet and exhaust pulleys however the tools for sale to hold them while loosening don't seem to be available for the JTS. Any idea if the same tools are used or not?

The inlet pulley is the same, but the exhaust pulley is different.
Not sure how different though.

Jaaaaag

My universal one worked fine when I did a JTS a few weeks ago. From what I can recall, there didn't seem to be much difference between the exhaust pulley and a TS one. If I had to guess I'd say the differences were in the sensor ring at the back of it...

TS and JTS actual pulley is the same, it the go, nogo vane for the CAM sensor thats different so the TS tool in fact all the TS tools are the same except the locking tool for the CAM shafts...

Cheers guys, looks like I need to get the covers off and see if I really need all these tools, if I buy them all I'll have to start selling my services to recoupe the cost!

I'd say the tools you can not do without is the locking tools, balance shaft tension tool, and some sort of gauge to detect top dead centre...I use a magnetic dial gauge as other uses too cheap on ebay...
