    Replacing my 2001 Taco V-6 TB/WP for the second time with 212K. I bought the Ebay aircabinman kit which includes the two camshaft seals. So what tool do I need to hold/brace the camshaft pulley so I can break loose the 81 Ft-Lb bolt.

    I have been reviewing threads but I don't see the tool.

    Thanks in Advance

    You can cut up the old timing belt, and bolt it on the flat piece of metal. Not sure if aluminum will hold it, but I've seen the old timing belt used to hold the the cams enough to break free/torque back up.
