There are none, IIRC you need a pin to lock the crank and a metal strip to hold the cams

Using Camshaft Alignment Tool T94P-6256-CH and Camshaft Sprocket Holding Tool T74P-6256-B, align the camshafts by installing tool into slots on rear of camshafts w/ #1 cylinder at TDC. This should be done at disassembly/removal.
Loosely install timing belt tensioner, bolt, and belt. Adjust belt tension. Tighten bolts to 35-40 N-m (26-30 lb-ft).
    Position lower timing belt cover. Install center cover and bolts. Tighten bolts to 6-8 N-m (53-71 lb-in).
Position water pump pulley, securely install the bolts.
Install idler pulley assembly. Tighten to 48 N-m (35 lb-ft).
Remove camshaft alignment tool.
Using a new gasket, position valve cover and install bolts. Tighten the bolts in two steps. Connect the spark plug wires.
a.    Tighten all bolts to 2 N-m (18 lb-in).
b.    Tighten to 6-8 N-m (53-71 lb-in).
Position upper timing belt cover and install bolts. Tighten bolts to 3-5 N-m (27-44 lb-in).
Install lower timing belt cover bolts. Tighten bolts to 6-8 N-m (53-71 lb-in).
