Timing belt tricks

E some of those bolts 
welded in so tight that  removal torque was well over 800ft/lbs.  

Removing the trans to retrieve the aluminum bits that fell into the clutch 
assembly sounds mighty risky for a timing belt change.  Beg borrow or buy the 
2084 please.  David, you are one of the lucky ones.  Recommending lucky 
increases the potential that someone just won't be as...

I believe that not using a 2084 can potentially destroy the key on the
crank timing sprocket. There is probably a fair amount of torque applied to
the key when the bolt is removed/installed  if it's not locked securely in
place by a 2084.

Last time I did the TB, I broke the 1/2" craftsman breaker bar. It handled
the job twice before. One probably needs at least  a 3/4" one .
