    Just about to do the camshaft install after new shims are in place.

    Lots of camshaft retention tools out there many of which I hear do not fit well on this car.

    Many people saying not to bother with them, just use a business card under one of the caps to hold everything in place.

    Any comments?

    I set mine with the paper from a razorblade. Worked great! Loosen a cap, insert paper, tighten back down. Cam doesn't move.
