    i've fit a timing belt to my z18xe and i never locked the crankshaft in place, i just locked the cams up and made sure that when i put the new belt on, i checked to see if the crank had moved, aslong as it lines up with its marker, it doesn't need locking in place, it takes quite a bit off effrot to get the crank shaft to move. once you've locked the cams up, you could always just put it in gear or something, then its defo not gonna move.

    locking flywheel

    thanks for that dave i fitted the kit yesterday just in time the water pump was just about to seize the only thing about relying on the cams being locked is the strain on the belt also the new crank bolt has to be torqued to 95 nm

    take out the bung that covers the torque converter bolts, put a socket on one of the TC bolts, and it will lock against the casing.

    For those that don't understand, the engine needs to be prevented from turning to undo/retighten the crankshaft pulley - easy to do on a manual, just put it in gear - but impossible with an auto.

    Garages (including my local Vauxhall dealer, according to their Service Manager) just use a pneumatic impact wrench on the crankshaft pulley bolt.
