During the winter, when I get into this job, I will first check out the tool by locking the crank at TDC and then using the cam timing lock tool to see whether both inlet and exhaust cam locking pins can be dropped into place.

If so, it means that the tool is ok as well as my current cam timing is ok.

I will also propably make the switches needed to drive solenoids manually and test the Vanos movement using pressurized air. This allows to drive the adjustment from max retard to max advance while engine not running. That tool seems to be basically just two on-off-on electric switches in a box with correct plugs to plug it into Vanos.

Yes that is one of the ones I have seen the other being an aluminium bridge from a guy in Ireland.
