Hi all
Fiat Fiorino van 2008
1.3 diesel multijet
Have started changing timing chain and need to lock camshaft. Purchased timing lock kit about 2 years ago. So now I need it, i find it does not quite do the job.
First dia was too thick ,but only by a miniscule amount. So small in fact I ground if off with emery cloth in seconds.
It is however too long because no play in it when threads just start.
What I need to know is ...has anybody got locks as shown in photos below. I can make it easily fit if I know what size it should be.
1 What is the length of silver part of the pin
2 what is dimension a cross flats
3 what is pin diameter .
Many thanks for any help or advice

If your kit is similar to mine which I used on a 2006 1.3 Grande Punto Multijet then I have these measurements, length as photo 27.5 mm, across flats 10, and shaft diameter 13mm. I see mine doesn't have the springs like yours, however it worked fine but I did have to rock the individual sprockets and flywheel etc. to line up.
Don't forget crank pulley bolt anticlock to tighten and correct torque etc.

That will help tremendously i have managed to screw it in ,,,just,,, .Only when flat is lined up to slot .I will now cut the length of the flat . I think I am correct in saying that the slot is shallow . Once again big thanks.
