Anyone have the 3.4 timing belt tensioner compressing tool?

I would love to borrow it this weekend if so. If this timing belt had been a planned thing I would have gotten all the stuff together first, but I'm playing catch up at this point and it sucks. If anybody has one I could borrow, especially down south, please let me know.

Hmm. I like beer but not enough to meet you there. Guess I'm pulling the A/C compressor.

Ah, just saw this. Thanks anyway, ended up pulling the A/C compressor and bracket loose so I could remove that tensioner and squish it.
