Cam Lock Tool for IMS update...Dimensions?

Does anybody have the dimensions for the "Cam Lock" tool for when I do my IMS bearing?

All I need is for someone to do a 1:1 scan of it on a scanner, and then send me a file with the dimensions. A CAD drawing would be awesome, but not expected. I also need to know the thickness of the part.

I have the car torn apart, but the engine is not removed (986 3.2). My back is shot, so R&D'ing the part to make a new one from scratch is not looked forward to with enthusiasm, as it would require under-the-car gymnastics. No, well, not if someone could help me in this thread. lol

Before anybody says "You can't make those!", yes I can. I have a lathe and a mill in my basement, and a LOT of clean scrap steel plate.

I tried searching for such a subject, but failed.

BTW...That part is a $10 part if made in quantity.

My understanding is you don't need spec drawings at all. Make your own. Owning the M96 engine is all you need. Apparently;

Our porsche indy/specialist here regularly drop by my place to profile & machine parts off my manual mill so I can't imagine it as being that difficult using the basic engine measurements (which you already have). Hand written notes on a greasy piece of paper and off he goes.

All I know is his parts are all similar looking to those you posted. All for diff engines... he does it all himself mate, he's fun to watch also

If I understand his post correctly, he wants to build the parts before he tears the engine apart. Hence the request for dimensions.

Noticed the "back hurt" part just now also :/ I read faster than my little brain can follow. Too technical to explain, don't ask!

Just txt'ed my indy for pics, got "busy" as reply. Hopefully someone else can snap a high resolution pics with a ruler as reference. Think that'd be enough to get those 2D parts drawn quickly

The year matters. The tool is different for 2003 and later.

the short tool is for the 5 chains as the the grooves in the camshafts do not line up.
you can lock only the lower camshaft. (which is fine as the 2 camshafts are connected via another chaine)



on the 3 chains they will line up, so you can tie them against each other with the long tool.

OMG... I knew I should have checked this earlier!

I ended-up tweaking my back out to just make my own three-chain cam locks. Yes, they turned-out almost exactly like the one pictured above, but instead of a hole for bolt, I made an open-ended slot.

The one for the front, banks 1-3 is flat, The one for the back, banks 4-6 I made offset. Worked fine so far,

Thanks again!

PS...This is now a dead-end thread, as I am going to go post a new thread about what I found inside my IMS...
