cam sprocket tool
« on: April 19, 2017, 09:53:01 PM »
Been searching here and found the Heartland tools.......but don't see a cam sprocket locking tool for newer models. I see them on Amazon for $25......anyone know of a home made tool that would work ?....some reviews say tool was too big....2009 FLHR

Take an epoxi stick and make your own tool in minutes (can be reused!)  :wink:

That's how a friend did it with two part epoxy used by body shops. I had never seen that stuff before, worked great.

TY.. I have been watching this and didn't want to sound dumb by asking "why do you need that tool at all".  I did my cams, bearings, shoes last year and read some where to lock things up as you describe..I was wondering if I messed up again...
where's the points and condenser ?

Juts one of those things that makes it easier, but you can do just fine without.  About anything you can wedge in between the sprockets that won't damage them will do fine.  And so will putting it in gear and holding the brake.

Yes.. and TY and others once again last year for all the help with my first trip into a TC cam chest.. Your pics for cam base circle and timing were of great help.
