Snap-on Releases New Cam Gear Holder
Oct. 24, 2013—Snap-on Tools announced Thursday the release of a new Cam Gear Holder (CGH1236) to simplify the removal and installation of cam gears on Chrysler and Dodge vehicles. The goal for the new tool, the company said, is for fewer broken cam gears and faster repairs.
The new cam gear holder features a hole at the center of the tool, allowing a socket to be inserted for removal of the cam gear bolt. It fits 18 different models of Chrysler and Dodge cars, trucks, SUVs and vans, including 1995–2010 3.5-liter V6 engines and 2007–11 4.0-iter V6 engines.
“Service technicians need a reliable holder when replacing cam gears on Chrysler and Dodge vehicles. Our new CGH1236 holds the hex at the gear hub, so the removal and torquing of the cam gear is simple and precise,” said Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on.
