EN-48313 Timing Chain Retainer Tool Set Alt ST-161
Stallion ST-161 Timing Chain Retainer Set - EN-48313 Alt
A change from the current 3/8 inch timing chain for the high feature V6 engine family drives the need for a new timing chain retention tool. This tool is required to service the camshaft position actuators (phasers) as well as the camshafts, camshaft followers, valve springs and valve seals on High Feature V6 engines with the 7.7mm timing drive system (built after May, 2006). Without this tool, repair or replacement of any of the aforementioned engine components will require the removal of the engine front cover and the disassebly of the entire camshaft timing system resulting in excessive labor time. Once the camshaft covers are removed, tool ST-118 is then installed to retain the camshafts in their proper orientation. The timing chain and it's position relative to the camshaft position actuators is marked to ensure proper reassembly. This tool is then installed allowing for the removal of the camshaft actuator(s) while maintaining proper camshaft position timing.
