Timken500 Thanks going to order them from massive with the bolt. Think I am going to do this to keep my peace of mind. Does everyone just buy the Motorcraft Timing belt ??

6SPD_soul Massive sells them (vendor on here you've probably seen) for I think around $30. OTC sells them for probably cheaper, in fact here's a link for a $22 set

I just googled "Ford Zetec timing belt tool" and saw a lot of options.

Timken500 Any one know right off hand where you get the Special tools and how much they cost ??

tukaniSVT I've added it to the How-To Archive actually.

And the Archive is a sticky in the technical issues area.

tukaniSVT ^^ Definitely a great guideline from Ford.

I have used that guideline as well when I first did my timing belt a few years back.

tukaniSVT I've done a few SVT Timing belts, including my own, and I can see where you ran into some fun issues.

But after the first time, I have the right tools and help to get it down pretty quickly now.

Props on working on it for the first time.
