Timing Belt Kit

Hey guys,
Quick question - is there timing belt kit that includes the pulleys/tensioner, belt and water pump? If so, where is the best place to buy it?

Check out Rockauto but also cross shop part numbers to find the best deal. I recommend the Gates brand. Any kit you get will most likely not have the water pump included you'll have to get that separate. I bought the gates water pump and it was identical to the stock one I pulled off.


This is the kit a I put on a local members SVT last month




Here are the water pumps as you can see they are identical.





Here is a pic when I did my timing belt in Ole' Yeller'. I bought the Gates Blue racing belt which I wouldn't recommend unless your doing a show car, it gets dirty rather quickly lol. Everything besides the t-belt was only 50 bucks if I remember right off of Rockauto 2-3 years ago when I bought everything. I had to piece together my own kit since I was using the blue belt and it doesn't come in a kit.

Thanks for the tips. I don't really need the water pump, but if I'm in there that deep already..

I'll probably end up shopping around, as suggested - either eBay or Amazon for the kit, and then I'll probably see what price I can get on the pump through a dealer (a friend is a mechanic at an independent shop and gets a discount).

The "cam locking tool" or whatever you want to call it -- required, or is the homemade tool good enough?

The cam tool and timing pin are definitely helpful and not that expensive. I bought it on amazon for $20 part number was OTC 6486. Same tools used in the non-SVT.

I highly recommend you get a timing tool, for 30 bucks or less you can't go wrong though some have made a home made tool. I'd use the tool especially since you have a SVT. I've got the OTC tool and it works great and I have timed a zetec's and SVT's a dozen times with it, with great success.

Idk why you wouldn't just keep with motorcraft when you go through Steve over at tousley ford it's really not that bad of a price. Might as well keep everything ford no?? But each to their own...
