Check THIS out folks...
Russians claim, that 1,4-8V engine has a bit different "clocking" in Fiat Albea model.
Crankshaft tool is 2 degrees off, comparing to Grande tools (as a reference).

Camshaft tool is 1,25 (one and a quarter) degree out. So 8,75 not 10 (in Grande).

Smallest tool is OK (tiny differences don't matter here).

Let's add more confusion. Someone produced third version of crank tool, not 2 but 5 off.

So, be careful. Using timing belt tools might NOT be the best and "professional" and "proper" way to do this. Depends on what tools you've bought via Internet (eBay or whatever, seller may not know what is he really selling). That explains why people sometimes experience problems after timing belt job was performed "correctly" by mechanic.
