|MarsSVTF||Hey i took a second look at my timing belt and i noticed it had a part number on on it and FORD and then GATES written on in. Does gates make the OEM belts for ford?|

|e6bill||Just ordered the Massive tool kit from Amazon, $30. Now on to parts gathering.|

2 idler kit covers all possibilities, you'll only use the one that fits/matches (two sizes).
Order up the timing tool kit from Massive, not terribly expensive & definitely necessary to get it right.

|MarsSVTF||Quick question, i'm ordering some parts, do i need the kit with the 1 Tensioner, 2 Idlers? O the 1 Tensioner, 1 Idlers|

|Blue5ive||A couple years ago local Ford dealer quoted me $1200 to do just timing belt, tensioner and idler and they would need the car at least 2 days.|

That's more than double typical prices I've seen posted, how many repairs included in that? (water pump? complete serpentine including tensioner/idler?)
What's the shop rate up to in that area?

I'm not the most experienced with these but I would think it looks perfectly fine for now. Mine was in considerably worse shapes with visible cracks all the way around it and it got me through 20k miles since I noticed it, who knows how long it was like it.
As soon as you are able to it's best to get it done though, especially in the cold weather could make it more likely to break but it looks in good enough condition at the moment so you should be fine.
