No damage to the head or valves though!!

BTW I'm giving away the bar and timing pin. Just pay for S&H. PM me if interested.....just paying it forward.

For as cheap and as easy as it is to replace these belts I would never risk it. Not when you're looking at $1000-$1500 to rebuild the engine. You could actually be in way deeper than that if something happens to block or pistons.

|2003SBSVTF||138471 miles and still on original belt. took upper timing cover off and the belt looked really good no cracks, numbers on belt looks new. Its the first thing i do but not it desperate need.|

for the timing belt (the crankshaft pin and the cam locking bar) you NEEEEED those proper tools! You could jimmy up a solution for the pin but the cam locking bar is a pretty specific thickness to be bang-on. I bought it.... made the job a breeze! worth every penny and some.... :)
The job should take you an entire day... or weekend (Depending on your skill level)
I've done it twice now and could bang it off in a day. Thinking of doing the Timing Belt again once I hit 300,000kms which is 50,000kms away!
