Only 1 bolt is needed in any of those and can be bolted pretty much anywhere they fit.

If your undoing the front pulley the flywheel will turn clockwise as you look at it. So the tool needs to sit at at a slight angle to the flywheel with the bolt to the rhs of the bracket.

Yes, but 18G1571 is the tool for the PG1 flywheel. If your tool doesn't fit, it isn't an 18G1571. The 18G1674 that you are looking for was made specifically for PG1 flywheels fitted with a reluctor ring which prevents the use of the 18G1571. These were certainly fitted to the Rover 75/MG ZT - does the TF have a reluctor ring too??

The original genuine Rover tools were manufactured/supplied by Churchill Tools I think.

I am confused by your posts - earlier you said that you had the 18G1742 which CJJ linked to, which obviously wont fit as it is made to fit to the bell housing in place of the starter motor. Then dert pointed you at the 18G1571, you then said you had that one.

Beware of eBay imitations - it is clear from the item descriptions that some of the tools that appear the same as the Rover tools are probably different, and most of the sellers don't seem to know what gearbox they actually fit (one seller in a previously posted link refers to a 'PG2' gearbox! - there was no such thing)

@maninthecar,

I have both tools as I also have a Rover 45 1.4 with R65 gearbox and the 18G1571 tool works as I have used it successfully to change the cambelt. (using the tool to lock the flywheel in place of starter)

I have the correct tool for the PG1 gearbox (Laser) but it is designed to fit in place of the starter motor, but as I don't have the gearbox attached it doesn't work.
MGTF doesn't have reluctor ring.

I'll try locking the flywheel with one bolt on the block and see if that works.

Cheers Gareth.

Isn't it just that without the gearbox the tool doesn't line up with the ring? Can you not just use spacers/washers/a block with 2 holes drilled in, to replace the thickness of the gearbox?

I've successfully used the non-pg1 locking 18G1571 with one bolt in the block location.

Crank bolt/pulley successfully removed!

Many Thanks for all your help and suggestions

Cheers

Gareth

Now all you have to do is fit it again.
