    Default ENGINE TIMING TOOL SET - anyone bought this cheap set

    https://www.vidaxl.com.au/e/87184758...0aAjAoEALw_wcB

    Just looking at options as have 2 x HDi 2.0 engine cam belts to do at some stage over Xmas break. Should I buy a cheap set like this as bound to have all the locking pins but probably no instructions but that's ok.
    May end up using the French mechanic out at Kenmore QLD as he's also a mobile mechanic.

    Also any belt manufacturer to stay away from as quire a few Euro branded belts are now available in AU.

    It's a pity it's listed by cars and not by engines, but all the models listed are currently obsolete. That may explain the outlet and price.

    Morning all,

    The exact same kit is on Ebay at nearly twice the cost.

    ENGINE TIMING TOOL SET (CITROEN & PEUGEOT) GAS/DIESEL BELT CHANGE NEW (15-43) | eBay

    I have 2 x 307 2.0Ltr Hdi vehicles to change the cam belt on soon, (overdue in fact) so I have ordered one of these kits.
    So thanks Dimistyle for finding this kit at a very good price.

    It looks like it has all the pins and flywheel locking jigs one would need for any job and my engines and cars are all listed.

    One of those lengthy right angle shaped pieces of steel has got to be the one to slip in behind the starter motor and through the hole in the block to lock the flywheel. And that alone is worth the money!

    Cheers
    Roland

    Roland have you decided which timing belt kit your going to buy?

    These are at a good price atm and I had them correct the engine to the 8v HDi not 16v as it was listed.

    Now for the waterpumps..

    Can anyone comment on whether it is worthwhile paying extra for an HSN (Highly Saturated Nitrile) timing belt, and whether it is safe to extend the belt change interval with an HSN belt fitted?

    Cheers

    hmmm... I wonder if this kit would work on the 407 2.0 HDi I have here (wihotu remove the engine from the vehicle to use it too). I have a cambelt to change ... and probably shoudl do the clutch at some point.

    Alec we used kevlar belts on scooters and they were the bee knees to extend the replacement interval but manly used to reduce slipping as less stretch. HSN sounds interesting

    Hi Shane,

    Your engine would be basically the same as for my engines in my 2.0ltr Hdi 307s (16 valve - 2007) wouldn't it?

    So I can't see why the same kit wouldn't work for you!

    Cheers

    No, not yet.

    I'll probably do that closer to Christmas time when I do the changeover.

    I think you ought to compare the photos with a brand that does tell you which engines it suits. Here is a page from a Sealey catalogue.

    Looks like a nice kit - suitable for HDi and petrol EW motors, at least.

    Thanks Seasink, I downloaded their pdf to check the tools required and all included for RHY and RHZ diesels. The kit is missing one tensioner locking pin for the petrol engines so buyer beware.

    Every car owner should very well know that not all parts of his car will last forever. Though not all of it are consumables, most parts of it will have to be replaced at some point. So if that time comes when a part of your car is broken or worn out and needs to be replaced, one decision needs to be made. Or simply, you’re gonna have to answer the question: What kind of car part are you going to buy?

    Hi Dimi,

    Yes the kit has arrived.

    Quality looks good.

    It's the same as all the retailer's pictures show.

    The plastic case is good.

    I also took the opportunity to buy:

    They are over 6m in length so now I can jump start my flat battery cars from the next suburb instead of pushing them around to get close enough so cables can reach!

    Cheers

    6m is a good jumper lead length would come in handy when you have park behind someone to jump start. Hope they can handle the current!

    I would like to see a set of tools suitable for the SV 3 litre V6 petrol engine. Nothing world wide when I last looked.

    Thanks Dimistyle. I will give them a call.
    Looks like it may do the job. I ended up making my own tools last time I changed the belt but the method i used to hold the camshafts was not ideal.

    I have a similar set of cam belt tools for my Renault Laguna ii (which is a similar engine). I found the tools to be good but the kit did not include the tool to rotate the inlet cam sprocket so I had to manufacture one.
