I am likely wasting my time since nobody has
confessed to checking their valve clearances
themselves, but on the outside chance that somebody
actually has and not mentioned it, is there a workaround
for the special tool supposedly needed to hold the cam
chain tensioner?

Thank you.

Um...there might be a "template" in the FSM that you can copy then transfer to a piece of thin metal to cut out. IIRC someone mentioned that they cut out that piece from an old license plate. HTH

Get yourself a piece of 1"metal pipe strap the king to hold a bundle of plywood for shipping and form it to specs to make a key. 8_6 in the service manual 15 mm wide reduce to 8.5 mm,3 mm deep , then 4.5 mm 19mm long  total lenght is 15 mm + 19mm .If you don't have any problems leave it alone, save yourself the trouble until any problems occurs .
