timing belt install

well im about to order the parts for this including the water pump. anyone willing to help me out on this? would like to get this done soon, since im at 101k and records dont show the previous owner ever did it. after this is done i can start modding it a bit and actually enjoy it since im driving it so slow and careful since i got it. Haven't really enjoyed it yet

i work every day from 3pm-1230am. wednesdays & thursdays are my days off.

Hmm ... it would best to do it on your off days.

On average it has taken us around 3-4 hours to do one.

Probably mainly because we keep chatting lol.

You will need the Cam Tools and an impact most definitely when you do the install.

I live in tomball but work in hobby. I can drive anywhere in town and meet up. If it has to be on a sunday (best for some of you) i can prob give my day away and someone will cover.

Problem of where i live its not my house and its one of those neighborhoods you cant even wash your car on the street because its against the rules :(

^^ Weird ...

Well, we will have a group of us together at the Track21 meet ... if you do indeed take the time to work on it after the meet ... it can be done.

But I believe it is suppose to rain this weekend.

I have everything taht is needed at my house... Except the air compressor. I have the air tools but no compressor. If you want to get together (all of Focalized are welcome at my house) we can make a Focus block party out of it. Pm me and I can give you my adress and Phone #. I am also off most Thursdays but not for the rest of this month.
