Has anyone used this tool?

Will it work with an EJ25D?

Is a tool like this really necessary when changing a timing belt?

It's not nessecary.  That one is generic and probably won't work on a EJ25d

 

This tool however is very useful.....http://www.amazon.co...QP77J15FWEDG8YM

 

But only really if you are removing the pulleys to replace seals....if just changing belts.....You don't really need either.

I've done 2-3 t-belt jobs on DOHC Subarus, I've never used one….

 

I've also never successfully threaded the belt on there without one cam jumping on me and causing frustration. I will buy one of these before the next DOHC t-belt job I do….. I may even spend the $$ and get the Subaru genuine tool…..
