AM-EN-48383 Camshaft Retaining Tool Set

Applications: High Feature V6 (2.8L, 3.0L, 3.6L)

This is a high-quality aftermarket tool set but they aren't made in the USA. See ST-118 for a Built In The USA alternative.

The camshafts must be held at TDC to properly set timing, especially once the inner timing chain is set. Both camshafts on each head must be held to time either head in turn. The camshafts on the left head must be held while timing the camshafts on the right head. During this procedure, the left head camshafts are under spring pressure, and can cause the cams to turn, leading to mis-timing the engine. On the left head, EN-48383-1 is installed to hold the cams, and timing is set per published service information. When the engine is at the second timing position to set the right head chain, EN-48383-2 is installed to hold the left head cams, and EN-48383-3 is installed on the right head cams. Both EN-48383-1 and EN-48383-2 are slotted to allow them to be installed over the SIDI drive portion of the camshaft in future applications. Failure to use EN-48383 can result in incorrect timing, leading to engine damage. EN-48383 is for 2007-Current. Use EN-46105 for 2006 and older.
