To inspect the tabs just requires turning the engine, which you'll need to do to get each cam lobe to point straight up. Turning the engine requires the 32mm clutch fan wrench I just ordered and should be here Fri.

You don't actually need the timing tool (aka cam locking tool) to adjust the valves since you're not moving anything that will affect the timing. Alvin/Andrew have the timing tool, I think there's a thread on here where they've offered to rent it. They probably only have 1 lock pin, I'd order another and lock both down.
