it can be done without the tool if you carefully mark the old ones position very carefully. Without haveing the old one to reference you might as well find the alignment tool, borrow one or buy one. Put motor on tdc cyl #1 and put sync shaft in with tool installed on top. Lock it down with bolt remove special tool and install sensor on top. If you get an aftermarket sync shaft with sensor, it should come with a plastic alignment tool which work as good as the otc tools. Yeah probably cam synchro. We change quite a few. Bushings wear out. Replace synchro and sensor on top at same time. Make sure you have alignment tool when you do this or you will get a hesitation of idle and poor power. These are tips that other pros have written in and posted but this is the proper way.
