BMW Special Tool to remove rocker arm and tappets

Hey so in the bentley manual (e36) page 116-8 fig. 12. there is a bmw special tool no. 115 130. It is used to remove the followers/rocker arms and tappets/lifters by latching on to the camshaft and depressing the valve stem enough to get the tappets and rocker arms off. I need it to replace my noisy tappets. So I have searched high and low with no luck, so please can anyone help?

Also my engine is a M40 so I hope, but I'm not sure if this tool will work on my camshaft. I know there is a special tool for my engine just not sure if this is it.

Thank you.

Why don't you ask Pelican? There's a link right on that listing to ask a question about it. They've always been very responsive when I've emailed them questions...about half the time I got answers directly from Wayne (co-owner of Pelican Parts).
