^^^Bring it by. I will make it happen.

ZX3ss, have you replaced the belt yet? I was thinking maybe the first week of January if you have not done so. We could make it a Focalized meet at my house.

Why buy the kit through Ebay?

You can get it at Orielly for probably the same price.

And yes that kit is fine. As long as it states its for the Zetec Engine.

I would go the O'reilly route. They have to service shops and people. They most likely have a belt kit in stock and one that has not been sittinh in a poorly ventalated wharehouse for months.

Let me know what Thursday or Sunday is good for you to get started. It should only take about 2-3 hours of work.

Just got back from oreillys, its $202 for the kit, $50 for just the belt alone. Now do i really need kit A? With the 2 pulleys and 1 tensioner? $202 is not that same price as ebay :(

You don't need one of those pulleys in the kit. You just need the Idler and Tensioner.

I remember when I bought the kit, I had one of the pulleys left over.

Because the Timing belt goes over your 2 cams, one idler, one tensioner and down to the Crank Pulley. That second one is extra.

Well, new products are never the same price as eBay sellers. But it's piece of mind and direct contact with someone if something were to go wrong or need an exchange.
