    Default 2.0 camshaft locking tool

    Hello there I'm doing a head gasket on my vectra 2.0 turbo with a z20net engine.
    I'm stuck as I need some cam locking blocks to lock the cams in place.
    Can anyone help me where to purchase some from
    The engine is the same one out of the Saab 9'3 turbo

    when i did my timing chain, we just used two spanners and marked the cams with permanent marker, the two spanners locked them in place, but incase they did move we could align them back up using the two markers we drew on with a marker pen. Is head gasket failure common on these engines? never heard of it before.......

    Oh and the only place i could get the cam locking tool from was a saab dealer, vauxhall dealers couldn't get hold of it. Didnlt bother in the end due to the price and time it took them to get hold of one
