AlignIt Timing Cover & Rear Main Cover Seal Alignment Tools For GM Gen III & IV Engines LS1-2-3-6-7-9-LQ4-LQ9-4.8L-5.3L-6.0L & more
Here is a couple simple but very effective tools to help you make easy work of aligning your Timing and Rear Main Covers. The AlignIt tools get the covers centered perfectly with the crank. After the covers are centered and torqued down, use the AlignIt Tools to install the seals in seconds! (See videos) Having the seal centered accurately with the crank minimizes the chance of seal leakage. If you prefer not to replace your Timing Cover Seal we have the Hub Simulator AlignIt Tool that allows the Timing cover to be aligned with the timing cover seal installed. Made of billet High Impact Plastic.
See the video below that shows how simple it is to use.
The Hub Simulator Tool is for those that do not want to remove the seal. It simulates using your hub to align the timing cover with the seal in place. Because the seal can flex, the Hub Simulator is not as accurate as the AlignIt Timing cover Tool. For this reason we recommend using the AlignIt TC tool over the Hub Simulator. The Simulator is still much easier to use than you hub.
Our Pro Series Tools are made of Billet 6061 Anodized Aluminum. They work just like the original AlignIt Tools but are more heavy duty for the Professional Tech or the guy that just likes the top of the line tools and the way the Pro Series Gun Metal Anodize looks in their tool box.
