99-04 GT Timing Chain tool?

I have to have my timing chain replaced on my 1999 Mustang GT. I have been told that I will need a special tool. Is there anyone who knows about this tool. Like the name of it and where I can purchase it?
And also I am going to have to rebuild the top end of my engine. Will I need any special tools for this?

Thanks guys

Ok. Does it say anything about needing a tool for a rebuild? Or can i just pull it apart like a normal engine?

All you need to do is loosen the valve covers and take the front bolts off that connect to the timing chain cover, then you will have to take out the (guessing) 12-15 bolts that hold the timing chain cover on. Then you will have full access to the timing chains but you will need to be careful with he tensioner because when you let the tensioner loose the cams on that side will turn if they are not restricted. This could be very bad if you do not take precautions to keep it from turning. I used vice-grips when I changed mine and it kept it from turning fine. The process isn't hard if you have a basic set of hand tools 10, 13, 15, and 18mm got this from another forum

Ok thank you for that. It helped alot man. Makes a little more sense now. But when you say "tensioner" are you talking about the belt tensioner on the outside?

Rotate the crank to safe mode which I believe is the 9 or 1030 position. That way if anything does unexpectedly spin all the pistons are below the deck and won't hit a valve.
