these are the timing belt tools and their dimensions. Of couse, you have to have fabrication skills to make these. considering how much time it would take to make these, it might be worth it to just buy metalnerd brand tools, especially since you can always sell them afterwards.

These are thumbnails, since the original pics are so large. Big pics are linked at the bottom.

note that you also need something to lock the crankshaft sprocket. You can use something to hold the flywheel or make sure that it doesn't move.

a screwdriver perhaps?

I just removed the belt and didn't touch the crankshaft sprocket. The engine is can move on its own, but as long as it stays at TDC mark on the flywheel or flex plate, you are good to go.
