Okay in the middle of my 16K/valve inspection. I have drained the coolant and taken off the valve cover. With the cover off I just replaced the spark plugs all look great. Yeah and 3 is a bitch no matter what. I took them of in the order of 1,2,4.......3. I can only imagine what its going to be like with the cover on at 24K
BIG question is, what did you guys/gals use as the cam chain tool? The factor manual says to how to build one but that's not possible right now. They stick it in the cam chain tighter and turn it all the way to the right. What did you guys/gals use to do this?

Dave, I just used a small screwdriver and a small pair of vise grips to kind of hold it in place. I really don't think you need to use the tool anyway unless you are gonna have to pull a camshaft to re-shim a valve.
As far as the spark plugs, you said they all look great. Just wait till 32K to replace again. Same with the coolant, just replace it when you do the valve checks.
Thanks mike! Would you happen to have a pic? I already pulled the plugs and replaced them. The coolant is drained as well and will be replaced when i get done.

I looked and couldn't find one. I had some valve inspection pics but none caught that. Seems like when you turn the screwdriver, it will kinda knuckle over and stay in place. I rigged up something to kinda hold it in place.
