924S Timing Belt change - tools

Hi. Recently purchased above.
 
Researching tools needed to replace timing belt. It seems I need a 'fly-wheel' lock and a tensioning tool (Krikit).
 
Would anyone be prepared to loan these to me (I would of course pay postage etc if not local to me).
 
I'm in North East Essex.
 
Many thanks.....

I have a pin spanner used to both hold /adjust the belt pulleys  ( made from a spare hand grinder disc change tool) , a large flat plate spanner also fits belt pulleys( made from a motor mower sparking plug spanner) & a flywheel lock I made myself.
However you don't need a flywheel lock just to change the the belts providing you remove the belt pulley from the crankshaft pulley ( 4 bolts ) as it is easy enough to both remove & replace belts with it removed.
Clearly you need to mark all pulleys( & belts if they were to be re-used) & set the cam pulley / crankshaft on their respective timing marks.
I set them ,put car in gear with handbrake applied & check everything regularly.
If your car is manual tensioning,use the "belt twist " tensioning method for both belts-the automatic tensioner for Cambelt is quite simple once you suss it out . We have both types.Carefully check existing tensions ( mark pulley positions as wheel as a reference when replacing (if reasonably correct) before removing existing.Clarkes Garage instructions are pretty good but read all versions as some hints are not in every one.

Many thanks Vitesse...
 
I found once I started stripping down, that you can manage without special tools, if you have other 'bits and pieces' available.
Just awaiting a change in tensioner pulley now, as I have the 'spring' tensioner, and not the manual roller (as previously ordered).
 
Yes Clarke's garage very good resource.
