does anyone in the chicagoland area have that special tool to take off they cam pulley ? I guess the better question is are you willing to let somebody borrow it for a day or so :)

The SOHC can be done without special tools.

Loosen the cam pulley bolts prior to taking the T-belt off(only reason to take these off is to do cam seals).

If it is a manual you can break all these loose while the transmission is in 5th gear with the parking brake set. If it is an auto a chain wrench can be used to hold back the crank pulley while breaking the bolts loose or you can find a way to lock the flywheel.
