I must admit I am a little 'gun shy' working on the car: I am an air-cooled guy (2 '68 912's a coupe and a SWT); and all the plastic bits on the 951 seem to be old and quite brittle (no surprise). That said, I have gone after and fixed numerous smaller issues including those requiring R&R of dash (fixing the light pipes for the instrument display, dash LED bulb install), door panel (broken lock actiating rod). I have recently finished front bumper cover R&R to include replacement of headlight washer check valve and supply tubing and repair of cracked grill supports (epoxy/fiberglass).

Question: do you have the timing belt tensioning tool(s), just wing it or is there some other 'cool' way to check belt tension?
