I took my car to a mechanic friday to get the dizzy timed cuz i had taken it out to check it and replace the ICM, well he tells me the crank was a few teeth off and today he said that my auto tensioner came lose and needs to be tightened up but he needs a special tool......idk what to think. do you really need one?

Yes i should have installed a manual when i did the swap but funds fell short, i would do it now but need my car badly.

The crank pulley holder isn't going to do you much good when you're trying to compress the autotensioner to reinstall it.

You need #25 in the above picture. I had like 5 of them from old timing belt jobs, but I have no idea where they're at now.
