For Sale: Gates timing belt kit TCK294B SVT Focus
My other post got archived and don't know how to revive it? Make me an offer. I will trade too, looking specifically for a roof rack and I can add cash or I'd do the install for you for free if you're local for a roof rack :D.


Well ordered 2 since the first kit I ordered took 3 weeks to get because of a screwup on a website. Have no need for this now. This kit comes with the belt and 2 pulleys.

If you're wanting to replace your timing belt, I'll offer this kit. I also have the cam alignment tool that I could rent out(with security deposit) if you buy the kit. I don't have the timing bolt as that broke if you read my thread. I'd recommend getting TDC by removing the cylinder #1 spark plug and using a long screwdriver to turn the crank and when it stops at the highest point, that's your TDC.

This is brand new in the package. I think I paid around $86 for it so I'd like to recoup most of my costs.

Is it the blue racing belt?

OrangeSVTguy 11-04-2012 04:19 PM

No it's the black one. Well at least the other one I bought was black. I haven't opened this one.

OrangeSVTguy 11-04-2012 04:49 PM

No... but it is now [:D] I'd do it all for that rack of yours [giddy]

only if ya drive my snowboard to me every time I go [neener] but seriously I need this just hit 77k on the origional belt and getting kind of nervous [bigcry] is the tensioner everyone talks about included in this kit?

OrangeSVTguy 11-04-2012 05:23 PM

Everything that you need is in the kit. I have the timing tool too. Not the pin since that broke but like I mentioned by removing cylinder #1 sparkplug and inserting a rod in there to get TDC.

77K... you're fine, I did mine around 118k on stock belt/pulleys lol.

That's fine. Responded to a few ads on craigslist so hopefully they pan out.

I also recommend doing your water pump and serpentine belt pulley/tensioner since all that comes off anyways.

redSVT_03 11-04-2012 05:54 PM

well its the age that is scaring me, Ive read the horror posts on here before. Im serious though I'm very interested. do you have manuals on how to do it? How long did it take you?

OrangeSVTguy 11-04-2012 07:44 PM

Sweet. Found a Yakima with fairing and 2 monster bike mounts for $225. Hoping to hear from another guy about the stretch kit!

Took me too long because of the cheap timing pin that broke and that added so much bullshit and time. I can probably do it in 2-3 hours? If you got a garage, I can help out.
