Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Lincoln LS V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 129035 miles

Hello I currently have a couple mechanics working on my 2000 lincoln ls 3.9L v8. They are installing a new timing chain because the last one broke. They can't seem to get ahold of the specialty tool you need to align the cams for this vehicle.I believe it's called a camshaft alignment tool. It's just a crankshaft that locks onto the cams and holds them into place while you get the timing chain into the correct position. Could you please aid me in finding this specialty tool? Thanks
