DIY CCT holding tool

Just chilling in the garage and i starting thinking of a tool i could use myself for the automatic cam chain tensioner as i know myself how awkward the space is.....no socket adaptor will fit and screw drivers are too long so i came up with this little gizmo that works great.

We have all seen these right?

I grinded down the ends to make a flat head, i also placed a nut at the end so it was locked together. Put the nut on first though lol

Half hour later i sit upstairs and i see this ....Hmmmm a gopro bolt fitting....That would work better but same concept. genius ay!!!

Re: DIY CCT holding tool

Is this the style where you see a screwdriver slot at the plunger's end, then there are 2 outside slots on the body? Where you line up the plunger's slot with the 2 outside slots as you hold the plunger from moving out with the other hand. They use a T kind of tin plate snipped out of a can, where you lock the 3 slots in a vertical hold? Install the cct, pull the tin-T holding plate, the plunger flies out onto the slipper.

Where you are going to have to hold the plunger screw steady so it does not fly out when installing the cct, someone at the cct bolts locking the body down. Then it slips and you keep bolting the cct tighter onto the slipper and way past that slight push when needed.

Back to the drawing board... if that's the style cct, and if you see the 2 outside slots.

Re: DIY CCT holding tool

When i screwed mine all the way in it stayed put and never sprung out, I then removed the tool...i do see what your saying as i am not sure how others work, I assumed there all the same ?

If there not i may have an idea to keep it locked in place?

Back shortly

Re: DIY CCT holding tool

Ok so i tried again on mine and have put a video up to show you that when you screw all the way in and it goes tight, turn some more and it will click and lock into place.....

Re: DIY CCT holding tool

Ah, I can almost envision the lock setup inside the body. No tool needed. I noticed no slots at the back so yeah, one cct design after the other. That takes care of that. You're going to need a soft tool against the chain slipper at the back of the hole. When you line up the cams, your soft tool (wood dowel) is in the hole, you keep loading that dowel against the slipper arm, roll the crank backwards some, then come around and line up the "l" to the split in the case [if still used] and are the cams timed? Then install the cct, snap the plunger out, roll the crank back one more time and line up the cams = Done.
