diesel timing kit

Has anyone bought this, or know anything about it: http://landroverparts.roversnorth.co...RNT2029&type=0

Does it have everything needed (as far as "special" tools) to do a timing belt job on a 2.5NA?

Or are there other options, besides trying to order the individual tools from land rover?

I have that kit. I have used it on 2's and 3's but not 2.5 atmoshperic. Presumably it would have everything for that as well.

I also have the kit for the Tdi... there are a lot of bits in there I have never used, so maybe it's for the older engines?

I have the same kit. I've used it on the 2.5NA and 300Tdi. It has the flywheel locking pin and pump timing pin for the NA, so you are good to go.

You really don't have to have or use the tools, but its somewhat more reassuring if you can insert the timing pump peg before using the locking grub screw to hold the pump.

I will check the diameter of the pump peg. I am gonna guess it is a regular size like 8mm or something. Then you can just use the butt end of a properly sized drill.
The main challenge to me was getting the crank pulley bolt out. I didn't have anything to really hold the flywheel. I used a 1/4" socket extension stuck into the large notch on the flywheel thru the bottom hole. I don't think it bungled the threads on the drain hole and even if it did I can clean them up or just use a rubber plug. There's a thread on making a flywheel holder tool on here somewhere.
