Joelnaf Awesome work! Just wondering how the belt broke in the first place? were you pushing it really hard or was it just a defect?

spurtis55 No, there were a few tiny nicks in the top of the pistons where you could see the tapping of the valves on the exhaust side but nothing serious enough to denote repairing more...

I was able to find a good low mileage used head on craigslist and cleaned it up and installed it and put all new idlers, tensioners, belts, waterpump, and a full gasket kit for everything and bolted it all back together. and she roared to life...

its been 3 days now seems to run real smooth and no problems as of yet.

After 2.5 months my SVT focus Roars back to life...

It was not that bad boys...from what i hear and read here about the dreaded Timing Belt break, granted i did have to put a new head on but it came apart put it to TDC then bolted it all back together with a bunch of new hardware and after everything i closed my eyes and turned the key to hear it puuuuurrrrrrrr like a kitten...
