Starting work on it this Sunday morning, and have the timing belt exposed.
That belts-side engine mount and top timing belt cover, both of cast pot metal or heavy aluminum alloy, were easy to remove but sure look like there's a lot of leverage going through them. Any problems with those cracking? Mine are fine.
Just pulled all four spark plugs, and except for needing replacing, all look fine including #4 and #2.
