If need be, you could make one as fast as you can drive over to pick one up. http://www.toy4x4.net/timing_belt/index.htm
Just make it a little long so you can rest the end on the frame rails or other spot (making the one man job really easy), but not so long that it gets in the way.

Tx's Dennis. Using that writeup as a guide already. Don't have fabircating equipment. Don't think JB weld, duct tape and coat hangers will work this time.

I made one when I did my timing belt, just out of some scrap bar stock and bolts welded to it. I cut off the long part of the bar and was planning to weld on a socket adapter or something so it could be used with any 1/2" breaker bar. Don't think I can ship it down to SD in time for this weekend though.

You can run the bolts through some very think flat bar and put nuts on them very tight, no welding needed. I have heard, though I am not sure I believe, stories of people who used pieces of wood for the bar and ran bolts through that (but the physics there seems a bit off). I have heard of people using the chain style tool, but I wouldn’t. The are also generic tools that do the same thing (you just need a little finesse to use them). NAPA might have that and you could talk to them, something like this: https://www.napaonline.com/Catalog/CatalogItemDetail.aspx?R=BK_7769191_0110510551

You’ll need to check the spacing on that.

I know you want to do this by Friday and so you cannot order things but if you are willing to wait a week or so:

Well I'd planned on shipping it :)

I just checked mine, I used 5/16" x 1" bolts spaced almost exactly 3" apart (I'm guessing the measurement is actually 76mm). 1/4" flat stock worked fine.
