So I am trying to organize my timing belt job and I have 2 questions:

First what do I use in place of the special tool specified for "Pinning" the de tensioner?
Next, am I good to go with the instructions in the shop manual?
Someone mentioned tech bulletins, but is that just for the detensioner replacement?

I fabricated the pin for holding the detensioner out of some metal rod and a poly tubing when I did mine last year. It worked great. I don't remember the needed dimensions off the top of my head, but I'd be happy to mail you the one I made if you want.

"dimensions are 0.190" on the very end by 5/8" long and 0.27" at the rest of the rod. We make them from a 2 inch long bolt stripped of all the threads, machine the bolt to 0.27" diam. one inch from the head. The end 5/8 inches are machined to 0.19".

From Alfa Digest, via GTV6.ORG. an excellent resource and some great articles from those that have been around Alfa's for quite a while.
