I just finished unpacking the timing belt assembly, water pump, and serpentine belt assembly which I ordered from Steve @ Tousley. All parts are Motorcraft parts, and only the serp. belt tensioner says "Gates" on it, it is made in Canada.
The timing belt is made in Italy, the t-belt tensioner is made in Canada, and the t-belt idler is German. Pics below are of the tensioner and the idler. It makes sense to me, to stick with Ford parts.
It's all going in next week.
