This is what Alfa factory tools look like installed to hold down cylinder liners in a 164 V6 engine. I pulled heads off my son's ebay parts car today.

I'm using 5" long, 1/2" conduit and large washers. Works fine, but the factory tools are of course the most elegant solution.

Yes. They cover a ton of cars so they are not specific to this car which is good, that means they will stick around for a while.

They sure work nice when you spin the engine with the starter so liners can't move, too.
