Heck of a price for most probably a one off use.The masking tape method costs a couple of pence and is just as effective when carried out with care.I did it on my Series IV and no problems at all.

As far as I know the tool is universal as far as engine sizes go,the fit on the end of the crankshaft and into the timing cover are common to all engine sizes.If anyone knows different I'm sure they will respond accordingly.

I've just spotted this on e bay (Rootes Group search).No bids yet for this rare tool.
I used the masking tape method for centralising mine on my rebuild otherwise I certainly have a go.
