Dear Max, 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to post my answer. Since I've
already made a thorough search on your original query and given you
all the details of my search, I can't give you anything more but to
simply repost those details here to make this official and close the
question. Again, thank you very much for being a fair customer. I hope
you become one of our loyal customers here at Google Answers.

Best regards,


I made a thorough search regarding your inquiry and found out that
this is a difficult request. I even sifted through a lot of links
including and but found nothing that perfectly
fits your requirement and so, I did not post this as an answer. I just
don't like my search to go to waste and the info may be able to help
you that's why I'm putting it here. But in case you find the info to
be helpful and accept this as an answer, please post your reply and I
will be notified. Here are the details of my search.
While making a cursory search on the part number I found the source
where you got the instructrion regarding this particular part:
Google Cache - 
Timing Belt Removal and Installation 
"A camshaft alignment timing tool (No. T94P-6256-CH or equivalent) and
a crankshaft Top Dead Center (TDC) timing peg tool (No. T97P-6000-A or
equivalent) are required for this procedure."
"No. T97P-6000-A or equivalent" - The only link that exactly matches
your inquiry is this one:
My ToolChest - "Your 1 stop shop for quality tools and supplies!" 
Catalog Price List - Manufacturers special price list - Open to the
OTC Tools and Equipment 303-574 - Crank shaft TDC Timing Peg 
Unfortunately, there is no picture or additional info for the item so
I can't be sure if that it is compatible with your Ford engine. You
can contact the company for additional info regarding this.

Another site I found is this one:

You might find the tool/s you need on this page. Again, there are no
other details so I cant be sure. Here's their contact info:

Probonopublico's comment is very much a valid point to consider. In
case you can't find the tool anywhere, the article on the link below
could be of help: - Ford Timing Belt Change 
"Now it's time to loosen the timing belt. Ford has a special tool to
do it, but it's not too tough to do with a prybar or breaker bar. You
may want to go ahead and loosen the cam pulley bolt at this point,
because it's easier to do when the belt is holding the cam in place.
Anyway, what you do is loosen the two bolts that hold the belt
tensioner in place, but don't remove them. Once they're loose and the
tensioner is free to move, you pry the tensioner clockwise until the
belt is as loose as possible, and then retighten the bolt the holds
the tensioner in position. This leaves the belt loose, and ready to

The researcher provided me with a new direction to search for the tool
that I needed to complete the repair on my car.  He also presented the
option of replacing the Timing belt by conventional means with out
using special tools.  Although the Link pointing towards the Tool
manufacturer in the UK proved to be unfeasable, but only because its
overseas, its only fair to acknowledge that I didn't specify
Continental USA only.  The Phone numbers and Addresses of the Other
Tool Distributers was what broke the case.  I was able to call these
places directly and talk to their Sales Reps.  The guy at didn't have the part but he had the phone number of
the people who made the Timing Peg for Ford, OTC.  I called OTC was
routed within the company to a very knowledageable person who knew
exactly what I needed and how to get the tool to me on a timely

I believe the secret to getting a problem solved based upon my
experience this week, is to not stop searching even if the first
contacts can't help.  The guy at mytoolchest at first wanted to hang
up but I kept him on the phone until he gave me the phone number of
his supplier.

Overall I ma satisfied with the work the researcher provided.
