RE: Anybody have the Timing Belt Tool?

It would be nice if someone could take a picture of the location of the hole
for this tranny bolt method and put it on a web server.  I could not find it
on my ' 89 90q.  I ended up buying a prybar set and using one inserted into
the teeth of the flywheel through the timing check hole.  It worked OK but
the whole time I was cranking on the torque wrench I was thinking what if it
slips, what if the bellhousing cracks, etc.
