Yesterday we finished building the counter hold tool. I will say my tool kicks BMW's A**. My father is a genius when it comes to manufacturing. We welded a steel plate and machined out so a one inch breakover bar will fit. I rested the breakover bar again the frame and the Jesus bolt (center crankshaft pully bolt) broke loose easily. This tool you can do it alone.

I dropped the lower pan. Found the retaining clip to one of my cam to cam tensioners. I removed the 8 bolts under the front of the upper pan.
