Changed the belts, pulleys, tensioners and water pump at ~92,000 on my sons SVT. Could still see the Motorcraft writing on the belt. The previous owner had never had it done.

I did mine last month at 83k miles. I replaced the tensioner, idler and water pump while I was in there.

Did mine at 85,000 miles. I could definitely tell a difference in the way the car performs. Nothing dramatic, just smoother.

Just did mine shy of 106,000. And the battery harness. And new tie rods and rear camber bolts. And CFM tubular control arms.

Now to sort out my alignment...

Just lost the sweepstakes at 79,500 miles
Age may become a factor with these belts as well, I guess.



I guess we'll see what direction the car is taking once the head is off it.

i have the pieces for mine. (although, i am going to bet the water pump now) and for some reason, i just crossed the 130,000 mark, and will definitely be getting mine done as soon as the tax check gets here. i had hopes of doing it myself preferably with someone who had done this already, but could not find the help.
