Did you mean Audi A4/A6 V6 2V Camshaft Alignment Timing Locking Tool - eBay (item 170614696024 end time Apr-10-11 21:03:51 PDT) (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Audi-A4-A6-V6-2V-Camshaft-Alignment-Timing-Locking-Tool-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem27b96da858QQitemZ17061 4696024QQptZMotorsQ5fAutomotiveQ5fTools) ? There are marks - in proper place, not on camshafts. You could make the tool yourself and buy one.

Here's a little trick we use at the shop for the audi's and vw's to lock the cams in place. fold a piece of paper and wedge it in there and it will hold the camshafts in place.
