    1.8 TDCi timing belt change

    Is it practicle to change the timing belt on a Focus 1.8 TDCi without using Ford's own locking tools?
    Can it be done with home made tools/devices?
    I have changed timing belts on variuos petrol engined vehicles but the injection pump on the TDCi worries me slightly.
    Any advice welcomed. Click here to enlarge

    common rail injection pumps aren't timed... so unless it's acually a TDDI, you only have to lock the cam and crank....
    cubic inches, there's no substitute...
