This is a J-48761 tool meant to lock your flywheel and allow you to do timing chain and other various jobs on Nissan engines. This is absolutely a must have tool if you’re doing that job and is almost the only way you can get a harmonic balancer off. Also referred to as a ring gear stopper. Used once and worked like a dream. I don’t know how you can do a timing chain job without this tool. Paid $162. Asking $100 and firm!

I’ve put timing chains on probably more than 100 4.0L nissans, and I have the tool, and I’ve never used it even once. Totally not necessary in my opinion

I'm sure there are so many different approaches to it. I found it really helpful for peace of mind most especially but I tend to over worry and overthink things.
