Default Timing Belt Change

Hello guys. I've looked in the haynes manual and it says I need to lock the camshaft and the flywheel with 2 bolts/pins. In the picture it shows 2 bolts. It says 10mm and 6mm I can't remember which way round. But it dosent say what the lenght of them are to be? Does it matter? Or do I need a proper 207 timing belt pin/bolt kit? Has anyone ever done this before? It's a 1.4l petrol and it has a/c.

I just use an assortment of old bolts (or a modified junior hacksaw blade for some HDI flywheel locking) as locking pins when i do most belts.

I only use locking kits where specialist locking tools and not pins are needed

Well that's the pic in the haynes book so I presume you don't need special locking pins? But does it matter how long the bolts Are?

As long as the fit the gap you should be fine i think i normally use bolts around 50-75 mm long for pulleys and double that for flywheel

No they wont do damage as you are not actually bolting them in they just go in a blind hole with no threads just use a bolt that is long enough and a reasonably tight fit i do same as windy just grab whatever bolt looks long enough

Does it matter if the bolts have thread on them?

Also would you recommend doing the water pump whilst I'm there? My only worry is. Is it just that easy as take the old one out and put the new one in?

Always sensible to change the water pump at the same time.
