An essential wrench for holding the camshaft pulley when replacing / installing the timing belt. This wrench has two special internal curves for holding the pulley.
This special design will not round out the internal pulley spline.
- Application: Impreza WRX STI (08-)(exhaust cams only)
- OEM Equiv: 499977500
Locks LHS cam sprockets on 2.0L & 2.5L DOHC Turbo engines. This prevents the cam sprockets from spinning when the timing belt is removed, which otherwise might cause potential valve damage.
Strong magnets hold the tool in place. Curved design for easy viewing of sprocket timing marks. Some engines require 2 plates.
- 2.0L | 2.5L DOHC Turbo engines
- Engine codes: EJ205 | EJ207 | EJ255 | EJ257
- Applications: Subaru Baja | Forester | Legacy | Outback, SAAB 9-2 Aero
Allows removal of the crank pulley with the radiator in place, making it ideal for timing belt replacement, and other engine work. Includes two sets of pins to facilitate removing both styles of Subaru crank pulley.
- Applications: Forester (98-09) | Impreza (98-09) | Legacy (94-09) | SAAB 9-2 (05-06)
