Both. One is better than the other, and one is less expensive than the other.

Curious. What do you need it for?

Cam Holding Tool

I agree with Namor, why do you need a cam holding tool? I have just replaced my cam belts on my multistrada which shares the 1198 engine and I never used cam holders. Dead easy.

If you need any advise, let us know.

Those two tools do the same thing. However, each one is for a specific job. The smaller white tool is made to hold the vertical cylinder cams in place while removing the timing belt. That's the tool that you need. The HDESA USA tool is for locking the cams in place wile removing the nuts on the came pulley in order to remove the came wheels.

I'm obviously missing something but how do you use the full cam holder in the second pic? If you use it to hold the cams and then put the belt on - how do you remove the holder?... :confused:


Edited to add, it seems Secret Squirrel answered my question whilst I was typing.

As squirrel said. FIRST tool holds cam in place to change belts. SECOND tool is to hold cams so the nuts can be undone and pullies removed.
