They come up on eBay every now and then, but when they do, you will find they sell for around the £100 mark and often a bit more on top.

The original tool was made by a company called SPX, and you can still buy them direct from them.

Unfortunately you have just missed out on a group buy of tools, orgisined by a member on RPOC. Theses tools are direct "Copies" of the original tool.

Surely it's not beyond the realms of possibility for someone that has one of these tools to measure it up and draw it up so others can be made and so end the mysticism and expense involved?

From what I recall, the only difference to a normal cam locking tool is that the exhaust cam is advanced at 2 degrees or something?

All the info is on RPOC, but it's in the paid member section.

That's like an Indiana Jones stalf puzzle where you don't know how long it actually is to make it.. :lol:

Although the 7.5mm slot is just clearance so not that critical...
