^ does anyone know if this tool will work? i heard it is better than the half moon tool, but i cannot confirm if the full circle water pump holder will work.
Also, why am i reading that even with the water pump holder tool, people had their chain move, which caused the tensionor to tighten, and caused a whine when the water pump was in? isnt the tool supposed to hold the chain from spinning / moving ( to prevent slack which would cause the tensinor to tighen the slack which would lead to a tigher chain when the new pump is in which then leads to chain whine). i do not want to find out my chain is to tight and have to remove the crank sproket to retension the chain.
Has anyone done this job on the 2.4 ecotech in a terrain/equinox? any tips? did you have to drop the manifold or any other exhaust peice?
